Whether you’re completely new to working with schools or have been hosting farm visits for years, LEAF Education can support you to take the next step.
There are loads of ways to connect your farm with the classroom and help children experience food, farming and the countryside. Whether you're completely new or are looking for fresh ideas, LEAF Education are here to help with whatever type of activity you choose.
Facetime A Farmer
FaceTime a Farmer is a fortnightly, ten minute Skype or FaceTime call between the farm and the classroom. It's a great way to start and engaging with children and youth. We'll match you with a school and help you plan and conduct your first call.
By joining as a LEAF Education member you join thousands of like-minded farmers who want to access deeper support to engage with schools both on and off the farm. We directly support members to connect with schools and provide training to expand what they can do.
CEVAS prepares you to deliver high-quality, safe farm visits. From ensuring safety to designing the experience, CEVAS gives you the tools and knowledge to provide excellent educational experiences on the farm.
After completing CEVAS training you'll be ready to start conducting farm visits. But our support for LEAF Education members doesn't stop there. Our local recs can continue to support you and help you develop what you're able to offer.
This course is designed for anyone who took the CEVAS qualification over 5 years ago and wishes to update their knowledge and skills in terms of educational visits to farms.
