MOVES to increase agricultural input in schools and turn farms into a living classroom are to be boosted through the establishment of the NFU Education Millennium Trust.
The NFU plans to pump £500,000 into the trust and is looking for additional cash from other organisations and companies. And it may also apply for a grant from the National Lottery.
John Lampitt, chairman of the NFUs millennium planning group, said the trust would allow the unions schools programme to be expanded. *
