These are the early years for families. Garden Gate offers multiple opportunities for parents to meet one another as well as to explore issues in parenting together. We gather to discuss topics ranging from the types of toys young children need, to family rhythms, to the “gift” of “no”.

Additionally, we offer handwork evenings to parents who want to learn how to knit, felt, or craft toys. These are lovely times for parents to meet one another and “knit” together their own communities as they begin their parenting journeys.
