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.

Home / Education / Our Impact

LEAF Education, in partnership with our members, works to inspire and educate 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.

“I don’t feel any improvement would have been possible. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the conversations shared. The course gave me confidence to offer school visits on farm”

— Farmer involved in LEAF Education’s work with schools

"Simply Farm-A-Zing! The children have excelled in this environment, showing enthusiasm and appreciation for cooking and farming. I am sure they will have made memories to last a lifetime!”

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 young peo­ple to the world of food and farming.
