Spielwiese Youth Farm, Weißig, Dresden

We had quiet a lot of free time during the conference of European City Farms. Some of used some of that time to visit the Spielwiese Youth Farm. This is a lovely farm for young people and children, in the hills around the village Weißig on the outskirts of Dresden. All the animal homes and play equipment are made from wood. The farm also owns several fields where the sheep, horses and geese graze. There are regular pony rides for the children, the horse below is Mona, an old Norwegian horse.


I posted a view of Weißig here on over Forty Shades.

Beautiful scenery - that's a heap of bales in the first photo - are there cattle on this farm too? Or do they sell the bales...
A neat place for kids to visit.

Looks very peaceful. Pony rides are always popular, and what a charming looking fellow he is, too.

How sweet Mona looks. Oh, the stories I'm sure she could tell.
