Special thanks to Jake Hampu and his volunteers for surprising our co-founder Shelly Zacks with an amazing new puppet theater. She is honored and absolutely loves it.... and the kids are over the moon with all the new playful entertainment. There are a lot of new DBCG puppet plays being inspired every day and in the works now!
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.
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!
Too often children are projected upon with beliefs that playing outside amongst nature is dirty or dangerous. To climb a tree, to roll in the mud and to be connected to the plants and animals of this Earth is our birthright! We can't blame children for occupying themselves with electronic devices rather than playing in the mud if our society doesn't put a priority on connecting children with nature. Join us Friday, June 29th @ 11 am for mud pottery and mud masks to celebrate International Mud Day with the Delray Beach Children's Garden and WiseTribe.
