Fun at the farm

26 August 2010

It’s not every day you come across a donkey, ferret or sheep in central London, but more than 30 nursery children of Goosegreen Primary School in Southwark got paid a personal visit by some of their favourite farm animals recently, thanks to a Lottery funded project.

After winning a People’s Millions grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Surrey Docks Farm, usually based in Rotherhithe, can now transport their animals and equipment across the capital in their new mobile farm.

Children growing up in urban neighbourhoods now have the chance to learn how a real farm works, get face-to-face with the animals and learn where their food comes from.
