Robert Wayne Footwear and Timberland Assist to Restore Heritage Museum of Orange County’s Children’s Garden
Heritage Museum was proud to host a volunteer day with Robert Wayne Footwear and Timberland complete with fruitful gains for their children garden
SANTA ANA, CALIF. – Robert Wayne Footwear and Timberland partnered up with the Heritage Museum of Orange County to restore and rebuild the museum’s children garden. The local organization and many of their employees dedicated several hours of their day to rebuild the garden and purchased vital items to help maintain the garden physically and aesthetically. Robert Wayne Footwear and Timberland efforts included beautification as they purchased plants for the garden and other parts of the natural area of the museum. In addition, they provided the museum with tools to create and raise beds in the farms as well.
The Children Garden is a part of the museum’s natural area which also includes two farms and a swamp. The purpose of the children’s garden often called a “Sensory Garden” by student visitors from Mitchel Development Center is to help develop and mature their sensory skills. Many students at this center are autistic and the garden plays a vital role in enhancing their skills. When the garden is not use for this purpose, school age youth in Pre-K and Kindergarten plant seeds in one of our many educational programs called Change of Seasons.
