Inter-generation Event – Early Learning Centre’s Visit to CCCIS Hope Garden
A group of children from an early learning center recently visited our Hope Garden Centre, each child accompanied by one of their childcare center staff and a team member from our garden center. During their visit, the children had a great time touring the garden, finding and counting the number of pumpkins and shark fin melons, looking for the fish in the ponds, and listening to the wind chimes. The highlight of the visit was when the children potted a succulent themselves, which they could take home to their parents. The children enjoyed refreshments offered by the Centre and left with happy smiles on their faces.
This event is one of the Society’s inter-generational activities, aimed at connecting children with seniors. We hope that this experience will inspire the children to appreciate nature and develop a love for gardening.
