Nutrients for Life is a registered Canadian charitable organization made up of educators, community groups, scientists, and representatives from the agricultural sector, including farmers, agri-retailers and members of the fertilizer industry. Together, the organizations produce and distribute educational materials on soil science and agricultural sustainability.
The Nutrients for Life Foundation addresses issues including food security and agricultural sustainability through its educational resources and programs, while working with educators across Canada to ensure its resources meet the needs of teachers and students. To validate its pedagogical value, the organization’s educational materials were reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest research organization and museum complex.
