LEAF Education Cymru builds on the work of FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) following the successful merger with LEAF.

We work across the education, farming and food sectors to inspire, engage and mobilize farmers and teachers about the value of farming in a learning context. We provide training and resources for teachers and help farmers navigate the world of education and support them in working with schools.

Food and farming supports many areas of the curriculum, from science and maths to art and history. Farm visits, school farmers markets and classroom activities provide ideal opportunities to support:

  • Successful Futures, the new curriculum for Wales
  • Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship
  • Outdoor Learning
  • Cwricwlwm Cymreig
  • Welsh Baccalaureate

The main site at https://education.leafuk.org/ and the new Countryside Classroom website for teachers haveĀ  information about farm visits, class activities and resources that will help pupils learn about the countryside and the food chain. This site contains resources specific to Wales. For more details contact:
