Harmonium’s Baker Child Care Program offers creative and educational yet affordable child care to families in Southeast San Diego. Recently, Harmonium coordinated and executed seven “Serve-a-thon” projects to re-vamp and rejuvenate various parts of their child care facilities, including the “Baby Bloomer Garden and Playground” where Backyard X-Scapes’ own bamboo fencing is now proudly on display.
Backyard X-Scapes happily donated 20 rolls of our natural, black and mahogany rolled bamboo fencing to be used as a decorative accent against the previously harsh chain-link fence that bordered the playground. After it’s make-over, the Baby Bloomer Playground is now used every day as an integral part of Harmonium’s mission to bring wellness and healthy habits to our community's children.
In addition to the Baby Bloomer Playground, Backyard X-Scapes bamboo fencing made the short trip to Balboa Elementary school to beautiful an additional Infant/Toddler Garden Area. Backyard X-Scapes was able to donate so much bamboo fencing that two playgrounds in our community are now viable and visually appealing.
Volunteer San Diego staged is annual volunteer weekend throughout San Diego on October 8 and 9th. This year’s projects included seven Harmonium Serve-a-thon projects, utilizing 170 volunteers from throughout San Diego county. In addition to enhancing the Baby Bloomer Playground, volunteers created a Krafty Kitchen Counter to show children organic vegetable farming techniques, resuscitated a dilapidated garden area to be used for planting and storytelling at the Balboa Early Childhood Program site and brought to life other outdoor areas that will be enjoyed by children for years to come.
Backyard X-Scapes is glad to have helped make a difference in the community in which we operate. We fully support Harmonium’s core values of respect, self-sufficiency, creativity and continuous improvement and hope that our donation helps Harmonium further their efforts to promote the physical, mental and emotional well-being children and adults in our community.
