Farm-to-School Hub

On the 1st and 3rd  Mondays of each month our volunteers offer Yoga classes to the ESE (exceptional student education) youth 16-22 years old. This ESE program, run through the school board, helps students with developmental disabilities progress in school and in life after school.

On the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month, classes are taught to ESE adults at the Grow Hub. These classes include a main teacher, and one that helps with one-to-one assists and adjustments. 

Tacachale 

Twice monthly we teach an accessible Yoga class to the residents of Tacachale. Tacachale is the oldest and largest community for Floridians with developmental disabilities. The community offers its residents the opportunities and services which respect and encourage their personal choices, enhance their quality of life, and maximize their individual potential.
