There’s a FREE event taking place on Saturday 30th April at the Urb Farm in Wolverton in Milton Keynes between 10am and 1pm. Children can do pond dipping, bug hunting, bird watching, a nature trail, and they can make their own bird feeders or a bug house to take home. Tea and cakes, plants and produce will be on sale. Urb Farm is home to Growing People – a horticultural social enterprise working with disengaged young people to grow organic, seasonal, fresh fruit, veg, salad and flowers for the local community.
They only have a small car park and on event days it can get very busy so I have been in touch with the organisers for some parking advice for you. They suggest you park on Marron Lane (MK12 5DE) which is off Gloucester Road one of the main roads leading to Wolverton. It runs parallel to Windsor Street which is where the farm is located. The farm is then a short walk down a redway to the farm and will be easily seen. They will put up signs and arrows to point you in the right direction. Details were correct at the time of writing, but for the latest information about this event keep an eye on their facebook page.
I'm Laura, mum of two boys - aged six and four. I started this website at the end of Sept 2015 whilst on maternity leave. I now work four days a week and do this blog late at night once the little boys are sleeping. It's won several awards over the last four years and I continue to run it for free and mostly focus on free, cheap, and good value days out. Do drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me. Don't forget to follow all of our latest adventures on facebook, instagram and twitter and have a look at all of the videos of the places we visit on the Milton Keynes Kids YouTube Channel - subscribe to it for notifications every time I add a new place. And remember... you may been reading this post months after we visited, do check with the destination you're visiting for up to date opening times and prices. If you find this blog useful then please do comment on my posts and leave me a Facebook review - it makes doing this all the more worthwhile.
