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!
Due to a need for extra days for field trips and new classes, we will consolidate our Mother Nature and Me program to Thursdays only. So, Wednesday Mother Nature and Me is discontinued. Come out this Thursday at 10 am and join a beautiful nature-minded community of moms and little ones. Veronica will be there to create nature wonders, share nature stories and engage the children in garden adventures. We'll be waiting for you!
Just look at what our community of families created! Many thanks to a donation from UUFBR, and for their inspiring principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”. Thank you to artist Jill Karlin for guiding us through the creative process. Thanks, also to the Delray Beach Chipotle for the delicious lunch. Stay tuned for the tile mural unveiling at our Second Year Anniversary party: Sunday Feb. 4th, 2018.
