Botanical Biergarten: a special event celebrating a new partnership! (Guest post by Claire Moss)

(Claire Moss is the Executive Director of Harwood Center, and it has been a pleasure working in partnership with Claire and her staff, board, and volunteers. Thanks, Claire for posting with us!)

Harwood Center and the Memphis Botanic Garden are excited to announce our new partnership focusing on children in the Memphis Community.  Founded in 1957, Harwood Center is a specialized education program for children aged 18 months to 5 years who are experiencing delays in their development or have a specific developmental disability. Specialized preschool and behavior services are provided  at four locations, by highly qualified staff with low teacher child ratios. Harwood’s goal is to help all children we serve to reach their full potential.

The Memphis Botanic Garden has numerous programs and activities for young children including My Big Back Yard, the Sensory Garden, and programs for children with special needs.

On October 18th, the two organizations will be hosting the Botanical Biergarten, presented by Southwestern Beverage Distributing, from 6 to 9 at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Come taste fall lagers and ales and sample food from area restaurants, while supporting children in our community. The event will be set in the Garden, surrounded by bonfires, beautiful lights, and live music by George McConnell and the Nonchalants.
