Farming is full of memorable moments. The joys of the first spring lambs, watching a storm approach, hearing the first cuckoo or seeing the swallows prepare to leave Britain for the winter. Sharing these experiences is special. Since LEAF started in 1991 one of our core objectives has been be to encourage more people to get out into the countryside, and as such we are delighted to be involved in an exciting and innovative project, Let nature feed your senses.
A flagship project under Natural England’s Access to Nature programme, Let nature feed your senses is run by LEAF and the Sensory Trust, and involves organising sensory rich visits to farms and nature reserves across England. The project provides opportunities for disabled and socially excluded groups to visit the countryside, to enable visitors to develop greater understanding of the relationship between nature, food and farming.
Are you a youth worker, teacher, community leader, carer, or disabled rambler? Or are you a member of a group, club or association that would enjoy finding out more about how farming and nature work together in England? If so, we want to hear from you!
