Mobile farm comes to school
PUPILS from Monther Goose Montessori got to walk and talk and squawk with the animals recently, when Wooly Wards Farm paid a visit to their school.
The facility is located at Wolfe Tone and District Youth and Community Centre, off the Vevay Road in Bray.
The children had a wonderful day spending time with the animals from Wooly Wards. There were lambs, pigs, bunnies and more at Mother Goose for the morning. The Wooly Ward’s Farm was established Oldtown, Dublin in 2011, with the intention of giving a hands on experience with the animals to both children and adults alike. Woolys aims to educate and entertain all.
The proprietors have expanded their operation into a mobile petting farm with three units on the road attending children’s parties, family fun days, educational events such as schools and montessoris, nursing homes and corporate visits.
They also opened up the farm in 2013 to visitors. The farm is open all year round for private events such as birthday parties and opens Mid March to the general public for activity tours. From May, thousands of school children visit the farm for their annual school tour. Once a month from May to October they host themed weekends such as the Fairytale and Harvest Events.
