Supporting You

We are a charity that works with farmers, teachers, educators and businesses alike to provide the best possible learning experience for children aged between 3 and 18 in Scotland.


We work in partnership with teachers to provide free training and resources to enable real-life learning opportunities that can be used to help deliver Curriculum for Excellence.

We give children in Scotland the opportunity to learn about food, farming and the countryside by working with volunteers who are directly involved with agriculture and other rural industries.
