HABloom Fest 2017
Thu, March 30, 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
On behalf of all of us at Habilitation Center for the Handicapped (HabCenter), it is with great pleasure we invite you to join us on March 30, 2017 at 6:30 for our 3rd annual HABloom Fest: “Bloom, Grow, Blossom” This fabulous evening is taking place at the beautiful garden and nursery of the HabCenter. This Farm to Table event will be providing great wine, craft beers, special bites, live music and exciting chances to win gifts for you to enjoy as you stroll the grounds.
This Center started nearly 40 years ago as a dream of families and community supporters to provide an oasis for people with disabilities. It is heartwarming knowing that so many years later; we are still fulfilling those dreams. The heart of the HabCenter is those whose lives we enrich. This year, more than any before, we have elevated the level of joy that our clients are experiencing in their lives. With this, we are proud to announce a new cutting edge initiative.
Our Plant Nursery work programs remain an integral part of the whole HabCenter experience. We continue to provide the best job training available. It is with great pleasure; we are launching an exciting Hydroponics Program which will teach clients new growing skills in hydroponics (an effective method of growing without soils, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent). We will help provide the hungry within Palm Beach with nutritious vegetables (specifically lettuce to start) through donations to local food programs (Boca Helping Hands); and, as a result, provide clients with a wonderful opportunity to give back to their community. Through the Hydroponics Program we expect to teach clients a marketable, 21st century growing technique; establish a dynamic "pay it forward" effort, introducing clients to community giving; and produce 50 to 75 heads of premium quality lettuce per week for 5 months out of the year for local food programs. We welcome you to witness the excitement in the air as you traverse our halls and grounds and learn more about this wonderful new program.
Habilitation is for life, and with your generous participation, helps us achieve our mission of equipping our clients with the necessary skills to lead productive lives and our goal to support their pursuit of thriving and more dignified lives. Think skillful, think independent! We hope you can join us.
