Harmony Co+op Explorers

In January of 2016, Harmony Co-op launched a free Harmony Co-op Explorers program for children ages 12 and under. The purpose of this program is to offer monthly events for Co-op Explorers to cook together, build together, or craft together! In the past we have made art and bird feeders, we've gardened, and even went on a scavenger hunt together. Thank you so much for joining us - we can't WAIT to explore with you!

Harmony Co-op is delighted to announce the return of our in-person Co+op Explorers Program! 

In order for us to better plan our events, we are now asking that parents RSVP for every Harmony Co+op Explorers event they plan to attend. This will ensure that we have enough supplies for every child who attends and will minimize our waste. We hope to see at one our upcoming events!

The Harmony Co+op Monthly Activity Bag Program

was created so that we could still have fun safely until we could provide in person events again. These Activity Bags featured monthly themed take-home craft ideas, recipes, and coloring pages for FREE so any interested Explorers could participate at their own pace. 


Now that we're back in person, we won't be offering activity bags but you can still join in the fun from home whenever we're not together! Take a look at what we've done in previous months here.
