From planting flowers to chopping potatoes, the nonprofit community garden, Adventures to Dreams is trying to enrich the lives of kids ages 4 to 14 through educational activities in the Willmore neighborhood in Long Beach.
Originally located in West Long Beach, Sheila Grantham, founder and director of the garden, saw an opportunity to move locations to the Drake/Chavez Greenbelt by the soccer fields, not too far away.
While the gardening program is her “baby,” Grantham and a team of volunteers also host activities and lessons including molding ceramics, cooking, STEM learning and more.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, programming days have been reduced to about two Saturdays a month, according to the Adventures to Dreams calendar.
