An initiative of the National Council for Workforce Education, the Sustainability Education and Economic Development Center (SEED) supports community colleges and their partners with curriculum and resources to transform educational programs for a sustainable future.
The Land Institute
The Land Institute has worked for over 30 years to develop an agricultural system with the ecological stability of the prairie and a grain yield comparable to that from annual crops. View their Publications section for helpful articles that can be used by educators and links on sustainable and alternative farming systems: (http://www.landinstitute.org/vnews/display.v/SEC/Publications)
As the Sustainability, Education and Economic Development (SEED) Center is a FREE initiative offered by the National Council for Workforce Education, we strive to provide our users with up-to-date information and materials. We encourage you to submit resources or open-source curriculum for possible posting on the SEED Center website.
Note: SEED is managed by a team of higher education experts who vet and curate resources and curriculum. Thus, not all submitted materials will appear on the website.
