Harmony Co+op Explorers

In January of 2016, Harmony Co-op launched a free Harmony Co-op Explorers program for children ages 12 and younger. The intent of the program is to offer monthly events for Harmony Co-op Explorers to cook together, build together, or craft together. We have made art together, made bird feeders together, gardened together, and have even went on a scavenger hunt together. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we adapt to ever-evolving needs and necessary changes to make Harmony Co+op Explorers the best program it can be for everyone! Thank you so much for joining us - we can't wait to explore with you! 

Harmony Co+op Monthly Activity Bag Program

The October Co-op Explorers Halloween Event has been canceled due to high covid rates and kids not being able to be vaccinated. We will have October Activity bags available for pick up October 19th at customer service! Our Monthly Explorer Activity Bag Program is available so that we can have fun safely until we can meet in person again! Each bag will have themed take-home craft ideas, recipes, and coloring pages for FREE so any interested Explorers can participate at their own schedule.   We will also have a special treat at check out on Halloween.

Harmony Co-op is delighted to announce the return of our in-person Co+op Explorers' program! This free activity program for parents and children 12 and under meets once a month for crafts and fun together. We've made ornaments, bird feeders, planted flowers, and more! While we have fun together no matter where we are, we sure missed having fun together here at the co-op, and we can't wait to see you all again - in person!

PLEASE NOTE: In accordance of MDH guidelines We are requiring everyone attending Harmony  Co-op Explorers Events over the age of 2 to wear a mask due to the inability to maintain 6 feet distance. Children’s masks will be available

We have so much fun at our Co+op Explorers events! Check out some photos from past years' events here!
