The Drop Collaborative and KidsLikeUs have joined forces to create the “Enchanted Garden” at their home base – 500 Dry Hollow Road, Elizabethton, TN.

In our space, everything is designed for and from the perspective of Special Needs and Senior Citizens. Functionally tailored to their cognitive and behavioral abilities. Remarkably, this approach also enhances the experience for those of all abilities. All are welcome.

The Enchanted Garden will specialize and focus mainly on hosting classes, workshops and events for the Special Needs and Senior Citizen population in our community.
