Take a Break in the Dirt – Summer Program 2018

This seasonal, volunteer-run, adaptive gardening program engages children with disabilities ages 5-18 in gardening and nature related activities while their family or caregiver takes a well-earned break!

Children are matched with a volunteer who guides and supports them, whether they have a physical, intellectual, or developmental disability. Children learn about garden tooling, watering, composition, plant propagation, and garden grooming. All while they create garden memories through journaling and take-home projects. Most of all, children enjoy the restorative benefits of just being in and interacting with nature!
