The H.E.L.P. (Health + Environment + Learning + Play) Garden.

Empowers Anyone to Build and Create Attractive and Beneficial Gardens Any Size, Any Shape, Anywhere and Anytime to Grow Healthier Food and Healthier Lifestyles.

As a Retired PA Child Care Licensing Representative, NRPA Certified Playground Safety Inspector, PA Keystone Stars Playground Safety Trainer and Current Owner/Operator of FANS of Play, I have applied my knowledge and experience to design HDPE (food-safe) raised bed gardens that anyone can build for twice the yield to grow your own healthy food.  Guaranteed Success.  
Recent studies indicate that children and adults are increasingly disconnected with nature, healthy food sources and healthy lifestyles. As a result, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and well-being.
But have no fear, The H.E.L.P Garden is here and together, we can reverse this trend with more health, physical, cognitive, social and emotional benefits.  The time is now and FANS of Play can show you how.  Now, that's Empowerment.
