What we do

LEAF (Link­ing Envi­ron­ment And Farm­ing) — the lead­ing organ­i­sa­tion deliv­er­ing more sus­tain­able food and farming.

Our vision and mission

Agriculture worldwide is facing one of its greatest challenges: to produce enough nutritional food to fulfil the needs of our current and future population, while at the same time, protecting the environment and human health.

Finding and implementing innovative solutions to sustainability challenges cannot be addressed in isolation. It requires the involvement of a wide range of actors from across the food chain – farmers, retailers, researchers and NGO’s.

We work with farmers,

the food industry, scientists and consumers to inspire and enable sustainable farming.

This involves work­ing close­ly with our pro­duc­ers, pro­vid­ing them with the right tools and ser­vices to make mean­ing­ful changes on the ground and inspir­ing retail­ers and con­sumers in pur­suit of the ulti­mate goal — a more sus­tain­able and resilient food and farm­ing chain.

Over the last six years, we have seen steady improve­ments in how our pro­duc­ers are man­ag­ing their soil and water, con­serv­ing ener­gy, pro­tect­ing their crops, enhanc­ing wildlife habi­tats and reach­ing out to their local com­mu­ni­ties. All deliv­ered through our pro­duc­ers’ com­mit­ment to Inte­grat­ed Farm Man­age­ment (IFM) and their dri­ve and deter­mi­na­tion to improve their farm­ing practices.

Inte­grat­ed Farm Management

Inte­grat­ed Farm Man­age­ment (IFM) is the basis of all of LEAF’s activ­i­ties which, togeth­er with the work of our farm­ers, sup­ply chain and stake­hold­ers, help in the deliv­ery of a world that is farm­ing, eat­ing and liv­ing sustainably.

Edu­ca­tion and pub­lic engagement

Food, farm­ing and coun­try­side for every­one. Chil­dren and young peo­ple are becom­ing more dis­con­nect­ed than ever from the coun­try­side and where their food comes from. We work with you to turn that around.

We have recent­ly merged with the char­i­ty FACE (Farm­ing and Coun­try­side Edu­ca­tion). The merg­er comes after anoth­er high­ly suc­cess­ful LEAF Open Farm Sun­day, which saw 272,700 peo­ple vis­it a farm on the 11th June. LEAF is now look­ing to build on its posi­tion as a leader in pub­lic engage­ment in food, farm­ing and the envi­ron­ment and max­imis­ing FACE’s exper­tise in the edu­ca­tion sec­tor. The new­ly expand­ed organ­i­sa­tion will offer stake­hold­ers and part­ners, improved effi­cien­cies, enhanced engage­ment and will cre­ate even more oppor­tu­ni­ties for edu­cat­ing and engag­ing the pub­lic with food and farming.
