Potato Posters

Potato PosterThis year is the International Year of the Potato which aims to show the role that the potato can play in providing food security and eradicating poverty. These two posters have been produced to demonstrate the biodiversity of the potato and some of its many wild relatives which eventually led to the potato we know today.

Farmer Case Studies

It is fascinating to hear from farmers themselves about why they are interested in biodiversity. The farmer case studies are adapted form the CPRE/NFU publication Living Landscapes. 

Thanks to Colin Lizius for the use of his photographs.

Biodiversity Project

CatepillarFACE promotes farm visits where children can find out how farmers look after the farm environment and thereby encourage a wide diversity of wildlife.

A folder of activities has been produced to accompany farm trips along with a poster highlighting the environmental work done by farmers today.
