    My son attended the 6-7 year old program at RBG. As he was finishing lunch, a child (ALEX) walked up to his chair and punched him in the mouth. Initially, I indicated that my son would not be going back the next day. After some thought I called them back to say I would like my son to attend the next day but the child hitting needs to be removed. I indicated that the leaders mentioned they had issues with Alex during the week and that since this is a paid program, they should remove the child putting other kids at risk. JASON the organizer indicated...Read More

    Deer hunt because "deer population is severely damaging the garden's famed lilac bushes."
    Seriously?
    Not going to visit there again.

    Killing the White Tail Deer, was your biggest mistake. Calling in the Natives, in an attempt to make it politically popular - that was shameful. Arrows rarely cause immediate death. l saw the blood trails from running, injured deer. Your gardens are covered in blood. Shame on you all. Hoping Karma bites you hard.

    I supported this place until I discovered that they invite hunters to kill deer, because the deer are making a mess of their flowers. What kind of people run this place? Do you really think I want my kids to visit a place that values flowers over the lives of innocent animals that have no where else to go in an already overpopulated world. I will not be supporting your so called sanctuary for nature if you go around killing the nature that lives in it because it is not convenient for your money making schemes. Be sure my kids will not be going there...Read More

JASON the organizer indicated that is not their practice. I ended my conversation with JASON, thanking him for protecting the bully and putting other kids at risk of getting hit. NEVER AGAIN!!! How this program has dealt with this is unacceptable.

Be sure my kids will not be going there for any school event and they will know why.
