Children’s Garden:


The Ellington Recreation Department has implemented a Children’s Garden at Batz Community Garden. We hope to provide a place to learn about the joys and benefits of gardening, with hands-on opportunities – and to have fun! The Children’s Garden will provide a safe place to experience nature, discover the cycles of life and provide motivation to try fresh fruits and vegetables while encouraging a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Please check the Recreation Department website for further details.
