The Fertilizer Fun Box

Help us celebrate National Agriculture Day with a Fertilizer Fun Box and the chance to dig into soil science!

Fertilizer Fun Boxes Bring Soil Science into the Classroom

Each Fertilizer Fun Box contains multiple hands-on educational soil science activities that focus on the importance of soil and fertilizer. This year’s box is geared for 4th – 12th grade classrooms. Box contents focus on soil health. Educators receive Nutrients for Life resources and STEM based lab materials to aide in understanding Fertilizer’s role in growing enough food to feed the growing population.

  • Sponsorship: $600 per box for TFI members (please log in to your TFI account for member rate); $1,000 non-members
  • Fully tax deductible
  • Commitment Deadline: March 15, 2024
  • No limit to the amount of boxes you sponsor
  • Choose to support schools in your local community or be paired with schools where the need is greatest
  • Nutrients for Life handles all of the details
