Farming Fortnight Launches

Leading agricultural education organisation, LEAF Education is launching a brand-new initiative to inspire young people about farming, food production and the natural environment. 

Farming Fortnight (3rd to 14th June 2019), developed by LEAF Education in partnership with Brockhill Park Performing Arts College in Kent, will see hundreds of primary and secondary schools across the UK shine a light on farming, what it delivers and the many and varied career opportunities available in the sector.

A wide range of engaging national curriculum linked resources and materials have been developed for schools to download. Topic sheets, lesson plans, case studies and videos will explore different farming sectors and support teachers in delivering inspiring lessons around food and farming.  Each day of the campaign has its own farming theme and accompanying social media hashtag – ranging from arable farming (#TractorTuesday), the sheep industry (#WoollyWednesday) through to fruit and vegetable production (#TastyTuesday) to careers in farming (#FutureFarming).  Schools and students will be encouraged to share their learning experiences on social media.
