For the second year running Sustain member LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) are holding a competition for teenagers to spend a weekend on a real working farm at Llysfasi in the Vale of Clwyd.

The weekend will be made up of activities based on and around the college farm. Students will experience milking cows, handling lambs, feeding calves, learning about the countryside, visiting the forest, looking around the animal centre and having a go at tractor driving and on the mini digger.

Teachers can apply for the competition on behalf of their 14-16 year old students who would then accompany them for the weekend 28 June - 30 June 2019. Over the course of the weekend the school groups will compete in a number of tasks with the winning team being crowned ‘Innovation School of the Year.’
