Over a year ago we opened the doors to a brand new, state-of-the-art center in Ashland where adults with disabilities have the opportunity to build skills that will help lead fulfilling lives in the community. These days many individuals enjoy an array of activities from cooking to gardening, chair volleyball to Zumba, and much more.
Participants have been especially busy this summer socializing and gardening on the outdoor patio. They have been planting and growing fresh vegetables such as corn, eggplant, carrots, and squash. They're even growing potatoes in special wood containers thanks to a donation from Home Depot.
The center also features a spacious kitchen where cooking groups use the fresh garden vegetables, research and budget additional ingredients for recipes, and learn about numerous countries for weekly international cooking activity.
We're grateful to the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism for their help with funding the Life Skills & Learning Center.
