Urban Roots is a weekly Saturday morning club which inspires young people aged 8-14 to get involved in all aspects of the farm and take part in some great indoor and outdoor activities.

It’s a real opportunity for those taking part to increase their knowledge of animals, nature and the environment – whilst developing their personal, social and practical skills. They’ll be doing all sorts of activities, such as caring for animals around the farm, making butter, exploring for bugs in our ecology garden or pond dipping for newts and other small creatures, finding out about nature, the environment and how to care for it and taking part in art and craft sessions.

Urban Roots is led by farm staff and volunteers who are experienced in working with children of all ages to help them achieve their potential and do more.

Sessions last 2.5 hours and cost just £8.50 per week. You can book as many or few dates as you wish (subject to available places) and we give any child who attends 9 paid for sessions a 10th one for free!

Please note: Urban Roots is for 8-14 year olds only. 10.30am – 1pm

Many of the sessions will involve physical activity around the farm and may be messy so please ensure appropriate clothing is worn. If you wish to discuss whether Urban Roots is suitable for your child, particularly if they have additional support needs, please contact us and we’ll be pleased to help.
