Schools' Country Picnic Pack

Schools' Country Picnic Pack has lots of ideas to encourage you to celebrate the countryside by holding a school picnic.

National Countryside Week is the Prince's Countryside Fund's annual awareness week and in 2016 takes place from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th July.

This National Countryside Week PCF are asking us to celebrate everything that's special about our countryside, from the landscape we love to the food and drink we enjoy, and reflect on the importance of buying local, seasonal produce to help maintain a diverse farming sector and a sustainable rural economy.

As a grantee of the Fund, FACE has developed a Schools' Country Picnic Pack. This downloadable booklet offers picnic food recipes, links to the farmers and producers of our picnic ingredients, suggestions of locations to visit, ideas for holding a picnic in school grounds – how to create countryside themed bunting, picnic themed activities etc.

Thank you to those partners who have contributed to this publication. We hope you enjoy using the ideas we have collated and that the sun will shine on your picnic!
