THIS WEEK IN FOOD TALK

A Soil App Aims to Get Kids Deep Into Dirt 

It's no surprise that most Americans are far removed from farming practices in their daily lives, and studies have shown that this agricultural disconnect is impacting our diets. So how can we make sure current and future generations are more literate when it comes to where our food comes from? Start from the ground up. 

Civil Eats spoke to the Center for Ecoliteracy's co-founder and executive director about a new project they are partnering with the Whole Kids Foundation to create: Starting with Soil
The app is designed to use colorful, interactive experiences to teach kids about our food system’s most fundamental building block, including how soil is formed, the roles animals and people play in keeping it healthy and fertile, and the basics of seeds, pollinators, and organic farming practices.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
