Our Impact

LEAF Edu­ca­tion mem­bers, part­ners and sup­port­ers have a huge impact by enabling our work to engage and edu­cate future gen­er­a­tions and through direct involve­ment with schools.

LEAF Education, in partnership with our members, works to inspire and education future generations about food, farming and the countryside. We work across the education, farming and food sectors to mobilise farmers and educators to bring farming into a learning context.

How we do it

With your support

5,000 farmer, edu­ca­tor and organ­i­sa­tion­al mem­bers sup­port our work. Their con­tri­bu­tions ampli­fy our impact and allow us to cre­ate resources for edu­ca­tors, deliv­er learn­ing expe­ri­ences and enthuse young peo­ple about farm­ing and career opportunities.

Mobil­is­ing farm­ers & educators

Many mem­bers choose to get involved direct­ly. We pro­vide train­ing, direct sup­port and oth­er resources to help teach­ers bring the coun­try­side and class­room togeth­er, and we sup­port farm­ers to work with schools direct­ly to pro­vide on-farm and in-class expe­ri­ences that con­nect chil­dren and youth to the world of food and farming.
