Children's Garden Quilt Day



We continue with our Education programs at WhittemoreCCC:

Children's Garden Quilt Day

Field Trips

In-Service School Programs

Educating our children to be children and learn from Nature and

all that it has to offer!

Our programs are collaborations, incorporating the best of what nature has to offer, and including the arts, music, wellness and food makes friends as well!


Yoga in the Gardens




Wellness & Nature

We will continue with

Yoga, TaiChi/QiGong, Pilates, Meditation and adding Yoga Fusion & Movement to our list of classes. As the weather get swarmer - we will move outdoors, in our Gardens, Pumpkin Field and even in the stream.

For what better place than to be outdoors!


LAUNCH - Monthly Wellness Salon

Come join us to connect with fellow members of our community over coffee & tea, learn some insights on specific health topics from our nutritionist, and listen to guest speakers while they educate us on their field of practice. In addition to the Wellness Salon which will meet monthly on Saturday mornings, we will be offering special programs on a variety of healing methods.

Walking & Mindfulness Experience

In 2023 our Walks will be scheduled around the The Equinox & Solstices. A new experience as we walk the trails of WhittemoreCCC.

Meditation Circuit

We have unveiled 3 of the 5 benches and look forward to unveiling the last two in 2023! Currently the trail map, and locations of each bench, as well as their associated Mindfulness Meditation can be found HERE!

Why are some of our programs in both Wellness & Nature - because you cannot have one without the other.

Today it is even more important than ever to take care of oneself, being mindful, staying healthy and what better place than in nature.
