Garden & Drama

Tuesday, 9AM - 3PM

Part 1: Community Gardens inTinton Falls

The merits of horticulture therapy are well documented and include physical, intellectual, and social benefits. Participants will learn how to plant seeds and grow herbs, vegetables, and other edible plants. In addition to learning about plants and gardening, participants will build skills in areas of coordination, problem solving, and following directions. 

In case of inclement weather, the group will stay indoors.  Instruction on rainy days will cover topics like botany and math, as well as the rich local history and culture preserved through the historic Crawford House.

  • This activity will be outside. Participants will need to dress appropriately and wear sunscreen.
  • Close-toed shoes are mandatory. Extra water and a hat is recommended.
  • Participants will need to bring a bagged lunch.
