Countryside Classroom partners are organisations that are committed to ensuring that all children have the opportunity to learn about and experience food, farming and the natural environment.

Members of the Consortium are able to exchange knowledge, expertise and networks, to collaborate in new ways and to address shared challenges.

We accept contributions from organisations or individuals who wish to share their content with schools.
