Inclusion

Everyone is welcome. No two of us are exactly alike. At the PlayGarden we celebrate diversity.

 

Garden to Table

From peas to sunflowers. PlayGardeners sow seed, tend to the garden, harvest and cook; nourishing bodies and minds.

Adventure Play

Let me go outside! At the PlayGarden, we give children the opportunity to take risks, conquer fears, play uninterrupted and experience the thrill of the outdoors.
