The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) educates Scotland’s children about food, farming and the countryside, providing a crucial link between urban and rural communities.
Through RHET children can gain a better understanding of farming life and learn first-hand where food is produced and how it travels from the farm to their plate.
All of our projects and activities with Scottish schoolchildren are designed to work towards supporting this aim.
We know that it is those people working directly in agriculture who are best qualified to deliver this message. This is why all RHET's projects and activities use the expertise of farmers and those involved in rural industries. RHET works with those working in and around rural industries to educate Scottish pupils about how their food is produced and all of the related issues associated with farming and the countryside.
RHET FACTS FOR FARMERS:
The backbone of RHET is the network of hundreds of volunteers from the farming community across Scotland who generously give up their time to participate in one of the many RHET activities throughout the year. Without them, RHET would simply cease to operate!
