FACElogo small

Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) is a registered charity working 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, their cultural group or their economic background. They need to be prepared as leaders and consumers of a future in which more than nine billion people will need to be fed. Visit www.face-online.org.uk
