Take a Break in the Dirt – Fall Program 2018

Presented by Hope Grows in partnership with Moon Township/Community Engagement

October 6, 13, 20, 2018 | 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Robin Hill Park | 949 Thorn Hill Run Road, Moon Township, PA 15108

 Family caregivers are invited to enjoy a short break while having their care recipient participate with the Take a Break in the Dirt program.  Nature-based educational and therapeutic respite activities in the beautiful surroundings of Robin Hill Park. Our seasonal, volunteer-run, adaptive gardening program that once engaged children with disabilities ages 5-18 in gardening and nature related activities while their family or caregiver takes a well-earned break is changing to accommodate many other care recipients and families! Participants will still be matched with a volunteer who guides and supports them and all will learn about garden tooling, watering, composition, plant propagation, and garden grooming while enjoying the restorative benefits of just being in and interacting with nature!  This program is for ages 5-99, no limit on abilities and is a continuation from the “Time Out In Nature for Caregivers and Care Recipients.”  For more information, visit hopegrows.net or call 412.369.4673.

This Take a Break in the Dirt program is a part of the Hope Grows Therapeutic Respite™ program and is free for all participants.

Registration required. 412.369.4673 | info@hopegrows.net | hopegrows.net
