The Royal Highland Education Trust’s (RHET’s) ‘Festival of Farming’ has begun.
More than 3,000 school children will visit Scotland’s farms over the next fortnight.
Alistair Marshall, Chair of RHET, said: “Our ‘Festival of Farming’ will run from 7 to 18 November and during this time we will have a designated website where schools will have access to a wide range of digital farm visits and talks .
“The activities will cover a variety of topics for each academic level and we hope students and teachers will engage with the live Q&A.”
Learning and Development Co-ordinator Sara Smith added: “RHET activities may be known to some but certainly not all teachers in Scotland and this agricultural festival is a way to capture the images of our work with impartial material about how food is produced in Scotland.
“The learning resources linked to our business link to the curriculum.
“Experiential learning is a key way to bring learning to life and what better than using all your senses on a working farm?
“Our services are free for schools.”
