Food, farming and countryside for everyone.

Working to inspire and educate future generations about farming, food and the countryside. Read more here.

LEAF Education builds on the fantastic work of FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) following the successful merger with LEAF. This is achieved by working across the education, farming and food sectors to inspire, engage and mobilise farmers and teachers about the value of farming in a learning context. We provide training and resources for teachers and help farmers navigate the world of education and support them in working with schools. 

Our ambition

Children and young people flourishing

We want all children and young people to leave school able to make inspired and informed decisions about food and its production.

We equip teachers and schools to use farming as a learning context and mobilise agriculture to engage with education.

Farming and the countryside thriving

Our vision is for a thriving British farming and agri-food community that is: highly engaged in UK education sustained by an informed and supportive public able to access top talent for the challenges of tomorrow.

Inspiring young people about food, farming and the countryside

We want to help raise a generation of food-literate young people who can play their part in feeding a hungry world population without bankrupting our natural resources. Food is not just fuel.

How we work with you

We equip teachers and mobilise farmers by creating resources, providing expert advice and connecting schools and agriculture to create learning experiences.

Equipping teachers

We create classroom resources across all keystages to help teachers deliver high-quality learning experiences about food, farming and the countryside. 

We also provide training on how to incorporate these topics into the curriculum — both in and out of the classroom — and can work with you to build teaching programmes.
