About FACE

Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) is part of LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), a leading organisation delivering more sustainable food and farming. FACE works with its members and partners to promote visits to farms, and to provide easy access to a wide range of high-quality educational resources and activities to complement both school-based studies and outdoor visits. 

FACE believes that all children should have access to the countryside, regardless of where they live, cultural group or economic background. They need to be equipped to lead as consumers with 9 billion to feed in the future.

FACE provides a one-stop enquiry service, extensive curriculum resources, support from our team of Regional Education Co-ordinators, links with farmers and the rural industries, workshops and seminars for teachers and farmers.
