Supporting Health & Well-being
Thank you to the Whole Kids Foundation for the grant funding that will help provide learning experiences for our Functional Skills campers with mild to moderate disabilities (age 13-18) - helping build a new organic garden area at the front grassy section of our building. This project gives hands-on activities as they assist with developing this new garden into a teaching space for all TradeWinds participants of varied abilities - growing healthy foods and learning about nutrition & conservation. We plan to include vertical growing space, rain barrel water conservation, & plants to attract butterflies. These activities will aid in skills retention, personal growth for greater independence, physical activity, an “I can do it” attitude, lessons learned for improved nutrition, and life lessons, including teamwork, diversity, inclusion, & acceptance.View all
