Many of us have enjoyed a wide variety of fun activities at the Christopher Farm & Gardens! After all, why should kids have all the fun?

So, to commemorate “Grandparents Day” on September 12th, we are inviting all survivors along with their kids and grandkids to join us for a GRAND DAY of Family Fun at the Christopher Farm & Gardens!
