A survey showing that most young people do not link the food they eat with farming, prompted Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) to launch free wildlife visits to farms. The visits will show children how conserving and enhancing natural biodiversity has a positive impact on everyday life. As well as getting out into the countryside for face-to-face encounters with plants and animals, participating schools will receive posters and survey packs to help them on their way round the farm. Details of the pack and free farm visits are available from FACE.Tel: 02416 858261; www.face-online.org.uk
