When Robert came to Eliada, he rarely ever played outside except at his school. His neighborhood had no place to play, and it wasn’t very safe anyway. Children from distressed neighborhoods have rarely experienced the beauty and peace that comes from being outside. When they come to Eliada, they love to walk on the grass, sit under the trees, and visit the animals in the pasture. The four cottages where the children live surround Eliada’s Quad. As our campus ages, the Quad is less and less inviting. Right now, there are no gardens, benches, or flower beds there and our sidewalks are old and uneven. But the landscape is changing! Our new Outdoor Living and Play Area creates a seamless sea of lush green grass in the Quad. Abundant flowers, trees, and bushes add color, and make homes for birds, butterflies, and bees. We’re adding a large patio onto our dining hall to provide even more chances to be outside.
Remember the feel of grass on your feet and sun on your face? Give a child the gift of nature and a lifelong sense of wonder.
