Country in the City

Cornwall Park is an urban working farm
ever changing through the seasons.
For city dwellers
it takes many of us back to our country roots.

Also it's a wonderful "hands on" learning and teaching tool
for both school children and teachers.

Sadly today, many children think milk comes from the
supermarket or dairy.

I'm joining Tex for Good Fences and
Eileen for Saturday Critters
Thank you both for hosting

and thank you dear friends for reading my posts and
leaving your comments so I know you've visited!

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt

It is wonderful to live in the city; it is wonderful to live in the country, and it is outstanding when they come together.

It's all so green and lush. What a wonderful place for children to learn about the origin of milk.

Hello Shane!:) What lovely green fields, I'm all for city dwellers experiencing county life first hand. Love that stone wall!

A great learning facility and I've heard how children think everything comes from a grocery store with no concept of farms.

Dearest Shane,
It is a parent's duty for raising their children in such a way that they DO understand how nature works and how we get our food!
Lovely photos.
Hugs and blessings,

We don't see stone fences here very often. They are so beautiful. I'll never forget the lines of stone fences in the Peak District.
