Description

Nestled just a few blocks south of Atlantic Ave, our two-plot parcel of land, generously donated by St. Paul's Episcopal Church, now serves as an urban retreat, ripe for exploration and play.

OUR ORIGINS
The Delray Beach Children's Garden was created to help children love nature, so that they will grow up to protect and sustain it.
From the start, the founding committee believed that a garden for children should include children in the design and build. Children have been an integral part of creating what the garden has to offer today, from serving as judges at our design charrette, to working as volunteers throughout the build.
So come out with your family to plant and harvest in the Veggie Garden Labyrinth. Sit under the shade of the mango trees and read a book in the Giant Storytelling Chair. Search for the Red Eared Slider turtle in our Fish Pond. Hide in the Twig Tunnel, the Bean Pole Teepee or the Banana Forest. Fetch some water from the well in the Well Wishes Healing Garden, or take an imaginary voyage in our Dream Boat.

Mommy and Me classes, Birthday Parties, Natural Play environments, nature and science education and much more!

Today we explored our great blue sea at #NatureEducationCooperative. Children learned about sea turtles from our special guest Natasha, a Sea Turtle Conservationist. We learned about the nesting habits of leatherbacks, loggerheads and green sea turtles. Children dug a hole in the sandbox and buried β€œeggs” (ping pong balls) in the sand and we marked the nest. Jeannie brought in sargassum seaweed to study and some delicious homemade mango salsa for us to all taste. Maui from StreetWaves shared nautical knot tying and boat making with loose parts such as sponges and corks. The kids enjoyed cooling off and crafted some amazing vessels. Spin art and oceanic collages were super fun to create and we appreciate our volunteer Lauren helping us today. Thank you to all our families for joining us for a maritime themed day of nature play together. One more summer session left on June 18 and then Nature Education Cooperative begins again in September. - With Nattersen Mae
