As an instructional outdoor space, the Sunflower Hill Garden is a medium for educational, therapeutic, and life skills training; offering adults with developmental disabilities opportunities to thrive. Program offerings include group visits for both Adult Day Programs and High School Transition classes, as well as vocational training for individuals in a small group setting. Led by our knowledgeable and dedicated Garden staff, the curriculum is specially designed to offer unique experiences for individuals of all abilities:
Our 2020 Fall Programs will include limited, socially-distanced in-person and hands-on programs at the Sunflower Hill Garden. Each program will offer person-centered programming for adults with developmental disabilities, and provide opportunities to learn, explore, and engage in new and supportive ways through in-person garden experiences. Each program participant will need to attend with a parent or caregiver. We will also offer virtual live, as well as pre-recorded video programs with Teacher Abby and Farmer Caitlin that will appeal to the aspiring chef as well as the outdoor explorer and adventurer! In addition, we will continue to offer our free weekday Online Activity programming.
The Sunflower Hill Garden produces thousands of pounds of fresh, organic produce each year, which is planted and harvested by our program participants. Over 70% of our produce is donated to local nonprofits. The remainder is donated to our program participants and volunteers as well as sold at our Harvest Stand.
Located at Hagemann Ranch in Livermore, CA the Sunflower Hill Garden was co-founded by Christina Bogert and Lynn Monica and broke ground in 2015 with the mission to provide educational and vocational horticulture opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities.
