How much of your day do you spend inside? If you’re like the average American, it’s 93% for your time, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Allen Centennial Garden’s program, Lunchtime Wellness, hopes to address this startling statistic by encouraging the UW community to venture outside during the lunch hour and enjoy free wellness activities in the Garden.

Entering its second year, Lunchtime Wellness provides free, nature-based wellness activities during the lunch hour. Seeing 50-100 participants per session last year, the Allen Centennial Garden is excited to bring this offering to even more members of the community. Activities will include making lip balm, flower pounding, meditation, dogs on call, plant propagation and much more.

This program kicks off Wednesday, May 1st and runs every Wednesday from 11:30am-1:00pm until October.
