Garden Tots is designed for children between one and two years of age, will cost $10 per day and will take place from 8:30am-9:30am. Check back soon for our class schedule for 2018!

Children's Sensory Garden

This summer, the Wyoming Food for Thought Project is building a children's sensory garden at our Program Center and Urban Farm. We are extremely excited about this garden, as it is where our Garden Tots and Jack and the Beanstalk classes will take place, and will introduce children of any age to plants with different textures, smells, sounds and tastes.

More updates and information will be coming soon, but in the meantime, volunteers are welcome to help construct the garden, and donations are graciously accepted.

 
Horticulture Therapy

Horticulture Therapy is something we will soon be working towards offering here at Wyoming Food for Thought Project. We are excited about this unique form of therapy, and look forward to providing you with updates soon, so stay tuned!
