Farm to Museum: Sensory Garden

Coming Summer 2018!
We’re revamping the backyard into a Farm to Museum: Sensory Garden Exhibit! Look for a tractor to imagine on, plants to touch and smell. A sound garden to make music on, and a sensory path. Our newest exhibit will feature an amazing place to play and learn. Thank you to Wisetail Works, Cashman’s Nursery and New Holland for bringing this exhibit to life.

Our supporters Gave BIG by helping CMB build our outdoor Sensory Garden as part of our new outdoor exhibit – Farm to Museum. Plants to touch, taste, smell, view and hear the buzzing bugs. Sensory Gardens have proven to be helpful for stress, anxiety, and to support children with various sensory needs. Look for the new garden coming late summer 2018.
