Mo­bile farm comes to school

Bray People - - PICTURES -

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.
