Working to engage, inspire and motivate young people through experiential learning, in order to equip our future generations with balanced and informed insight into food production, farming and the environment.
Supporting parents and young people with food, farming and environment education while schools are closed is a real opportunity for the industry. However, LEAF Education wants to remind everyone that this communication has to be handled sensitively and our Safeguarding Code of Conduct as set out for Farmer Time participants must be followed at all times.
Please read the Code here and make sure you are adhering to this guidance designed to protect young people and you. LEAF Education cannot support any farmers having online conversations directly with young people via online platforms and social media. We will continue to work with the AHDB and others on educating our future generations in a safe and meaningful way.
There are loads of ways to get involved from joining as a member to support our work to conducting educational farm visits with classes of students.
Whatever level your experience, LEAF Education can provide support, guidance and fresh ideas to help you have an impact.
By becoming a LEAF Education member you join over 5,000 like-minded farmers, educators and businesses who support our work of inspiring and educating the next generation about farming, food and the countryside.
And, if you want to get involved yourself, members can access deeper support to walk you through the process of engaging directly with schools, on and off the farm.
Membership options from £64/year
