Educational Information for Farmworkers' Health and Safety

Lessons Learned from Lake Apopka

SAM 1042

Lessons Learned from Lake Apopka is a comprehensive educational curriculum about the benefits of sustainable agriculture for consumer health, the environment, and farmworker safety. As educators, we can teach students to become more aware of the food that they eat and what it took to get it from the ground to their plates, including how to make informed food choices that will have a positive impact on the environment, on their health and also on the farmworkers who work the land so that we can have an abundant and dependable food supply. Through this interactive lesson plan, students will learn through audio/visual case studies, critical thinking exercises, and break-out group discussions.
