These resources provide information for teachers and students on the key elements of both organic and intensive farming. We hope to provide as balanced a view as possible, but acknowledge that our principal aim as an organisation is to promote the benefits of organic farming.
Stuffed sets out debates about the future of food, for students to explore the issues surrounding how our food is produced and what impact this is having on our environment, society and animal welfare. Each debate has resources - relevant articles, weblinks and information - that will confirm or challenge their understanding about the impact of our current food production and consumption. This resource is aimed at Key Stage Four students.
