      Where does our food come from? Who has access to healthy food? How is climate change affecting our food systems? Project S.O.W. (Seeds of Wonder), a free curriculum developed by Cornell University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, gives teachers ways to explore these important social justice issues. Lessons are available on the web or as a downloadable PDF and include hands-on growing and gardening opportunities, group discussions and trust activities, the study of people working for food justice in their communities, and more. Cornell also offers a variety of other opportunities for educators interested in food justice—including a six-week course focused on the planning and development of community and school gardens.
