LEAF Education

LEAF Education focus on educating future generations about food, farming and the countryside. Working across education, farming and food sectors, they work to embed an appreciation of farming into everyday life.

Since 2014, The Royal Cheshire County Show is proud to offer complimentary entry to the Show for Primary Education students at Edge Hill University to receive a full day of teacher training by LEAF Education and gain accreditation for their attendance.

The Show’s partnership also extends to offering wider support to the students with Show Stewards taking small groups of trainees around the Showground to highlight the many interesting and educational aspects of farming.

Through the students’ time spent at the Show, the trainees benefit from a real, honest and accurate understanding of farming and are able to use this knowledge to educate children about the specifics of agriculture, both inside and outside the classroom.
