Concept Design - Dublin Zoo City Farm
Former petting zoo transformed into a hands-on Irish farm experience (open-air museum, playground, petting zoo). The area features newly designed traditional one-room school with a classroom to fit a full class of children. On the school's property - a demonstration garden, potato field, vertical vegetable garden and chicken coop. Enter through the remnants of a wooden gate in the stone walls to find yourself on a traditional Irish farm with cows, ponies, pigs, sheep, goats, chicken and rabbits in their barns and paddocks enjoying the shade of old growth trees and irish hedge. Learn how to hand milk cows, try to pull a plow, or pull potatoes from the ground in a variety of educational programs designed to draw connection between the land, plants, and animals and the sandwich in your snack bag.
