Garden Club Visits Downeast Horizons Children and Adult Programs – 2023

The Bar Harbor Garden Club Youth Activities Committee visited the Downeast Horizons (DEH) Children’s Program in Ellsworth to present a gardening activity for the participants. Each child decorated a pot and selected a flower to plant for someone special in celebration of Mother’s Day.

DEH, a local non-profit agency, supports and assists children and adults with developmental disabilities to live complete and fulfilling lives. The children who participate in the program come from MDI, Ellsworth, and the surrounding communities.
