"Mankind’s relationship with our environment is perhaps the single most important issue facing us at the start
of the 21st century.
A deep understanding of food, farming and the countryside is vital for all, but particularly for our young people who will forge their lives in this rapidly changing world. Norfolk has a proud tradition at the forefront of innovation in agriculture. We are therefore in a terrific position to teach people about the wonder of our rich natural resources and the exciting potential available from harnessing them, thereby maintaining and enhancing our status as a local, national and international leader of land-based education.
The Food and Farming Discovery Trust has been established to take this further. We develop new initiatives, and, with our land-based education partners provide a range of activities which help young people understand and explore their relationship with the natural world around them. I hope you will enjoy finding out more about our strategic plans and upcoming events.”
