Harmony Place in Asheboro has completely transformed an asphalt parking lot into a vibrant outdoor learning environment, organized by a primary boardwalk primary pathway to encourage movement. The children now have the opportunity to grow edible plants in a large raised fruit and vegetable garden and interact with shade trees, a multipurpose lawn, ornamental grasses, and flowering perennials.
The center also transformed an unused large covered area, adjacent to their existing infant/toddler area, into a comfortable, welcoming, and engaging area. They have also added an art area with easels and a low multipurpose stage.
