Nickern Children's Farm, Dresden

On the last day of the conference of European City Farms, we went to the Nickern Children's Farm, which has loads of activities going on. The windmill in the photo above was constructed by a group of young people, entirely out of natural materials and is used to help children learn about wind power. The farm also has lots of animals, you can see photos of many of them on this page of their website (you can click on each photo to open up a whole new gallery.). I'll just share this photo of one of the many rabbits. This rabbit was very lively and insisted on trying to give me pieces of hay through the wire. Maybe it was trying to tell me something?

After we had looked round the farm we had a barbecue and danced to some Cuban music. You can read a haiku about the barbeque on Over Forty Shades here.

Nice shot of the windmill!

Wow, I've never had a bun try to give me hay before! He must view you in a very special way :D

Gosh what a delightful windmill and what a neat way for children to learn. The animal photos on the link were precious to see. Wonderful post Juliet.

I love what you are doing with these farm posts. Now that the farm where I was working has closed down, these give me small hopes!
