Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) is a registered charity which has a commitment to educational work associated with food, farming and the countryside.
FACE aims to draw attention to the many opportunities in the countryside for education, leisure and social activities by working 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.
Their work with schools and young people is highly successful because of the immediate and widespread benefits of visits to the outdoors, and of using food, farming and the countryside to support many aspects of the curriculum.
They provide access to a large number of downloadable resources to support learning about farming and the countryside. Here are direct links to some examples: Why Farming Matters; Livestock Identity Chart; Discovering & Exploring Fact Sheets.
