All seasons of the year, loving parents are looking for ways to embrace time and create memories with their children and families. As we start to let go of autumn and enter in to our Winter and holiday season, it’s important to reflect upon time spent at Rochester’s local farm markets and garden centers. At these places, families find experiences that guide and inspire them through out this beautiful season, as well as its accompanied Halloween, Thanksgiving, and upcoming Winter holidays.
If you have lived in Rochester, New York for even a short while, one can learn fast that in Autumn,our local farm markets and garden centers provide the most creative activities and experiences for families. This time of year, families have the opportunity to experience the true meaning of “harvest” and its correlation to nature. In the present time, our society is becoming bombarded with technological gadgets that keep us dependent on screen use for communication, education, socialization, and enjoyment. This dilemma can often “rob” us of time that could be spent, authentically connecting, learning, and growing with our world around us.
To help combat the media hazards in our lives, families could have chose to spend time this fall at places like, Bristol Garden Center (www.bristolgardencenter.com), Victor, New York, or Wichman, Farms (www.wickhamfarms.com), Penfield, New York, to be active and creative. At Bristol Garden Center, for example, families of all interests and ages enjoyed various activities together like “gourd golf”, “pumpkin bowling”, a bounce house, a petting zoo, various autumn festive games, and free refreshments… all for many hours of the day!
This is only one example of the places families could have experienced this passing autumn. With a few clicks online, we can find establishments, events, and local parks like the examples provided in all surrounding areas of the Rochester region. Regardless, of where families choose to spend there time, the message in this text is a very clear, cut thought. Every season, every day, one must discover as many ways to thrive, connect, and support each other and our families. Best wishes for a fresh winter and here’s to Happy Holidays!
