Gardening & Drama

Tuesday, 9AM - 3PM

Enjoy some fresh air while learning how to care for plants and harvest produce at the Crawford House Community Garden plot. The merits of horticulture therapy are well documented and include physical, intellectual, and social benefits. 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 at the Crawford House. 

The group will enjoy a multimedia creative arts class at Count Basie Theater. Activities may include drama class, improv, drumming/music therapy, and other expressive activities.
