For Teach­ers & Educators

Every­thing you need to deliv­er the curriculum
through food and farm­ing expe­ri­ences — both
on the farm and in class­room settings.

LEAF Education works 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 deliver practical training, resources and activities that help deliver curriculum-linked learning through food and farming experiences, both in and out of the classroom.

“The children really enjoyed the tour of the farm and being able to go into the field to see the animals close up; a real chance to get out of the classroom environment and continue learning.”

“It really opened my eyes to see how a farm is run as a multi-million pound business,and to think about all the decisions the farmer has to make, not just what crops to grow.”
