The idea for the project came from the need to continue with and build upon the success of Anglesey's Walking Festival over the previous 16 years and the need to target more children and young families to experience the benefits of the Outdoors.

The aim of the project was to engage with schools from North Wales with an above average number of disadvantaged children, located in areas of social and economic deprivation and give them an understanding of food, farming and the working countryside.
Working with host farms, country parks and estates, the Country Trust offered schools 2 seasonal opportunities to discover how food is produced in the beautiful countryside that surrounds the towns and cities in which they live. During each visit the children spent time on a working farm and also visited a countryside destination, that they could revisit with their families in the future.

Each school received a new wooden storytelling chair to enhance their outdoor learning area.
Six resource packs were produced by the schools involved to support outdoor teaching and learning using the storytelling chairs.
