Thank You to our Garden Partners!

The Children's Garden is a free play place for all avatars wishing to role play family life in SL.  Since we don't sell anything, we aren't a shopping district...and since we aren't a nightclub, we aren't considered entertainment.  So how are we raising awareness about our Garden?

Community Partners!

In exchange for hanging our sign in their stores, we are hanging their signs in the Children's Garden. These are all places where Carol and I have shopped, so we believe in the quality of their work.

Meet Our Partners!

Karena and I were playing in the Garden today, and we are just so thankful for all the people that make it possible to enjoy this facet of SL.

Life in the Children's Garden

The Children's Garden is a family play place for Zooby babies.  Really, it started as a place for Carol and I to play with OUR Zooby babies and then we thought we would open it up to the rest of SL.  We have stage toys all around, and adult games like Greedy, Skippo, and Slurbage.

Here are some pics of the last few days in the garden!

Karena plays with her new piano!

 Mommies Carol and Desi play Skippo while the babies play on the blanket.

Have no fear...Diaper Dad is here!

Family Night!

We had a wonderful night at The Children's Garden!  The children played together while the adults played a rousing game of Skippo!  We love greeting new friends as they visit our Garden for the first time.

Meet Our Families!

The Children's Garden is built by the loving hands of two families.

Carol and Moondog Diggity and their baby boy, Levon, work with Desi and Van Hoil and their baby girl, Karena, to offer a safe and loving family environment in SL.

The Diggity Family

Levon, Carol and Moon Diggity

Carol and Moon Diggity love to build, decorate, dance, and play games like Greedy, Skippo, and Slurbage.  Both are long time residents of SL and have been SL married for almost two years.  They live in the Eastern US.

The Hoil Family

Karena, Desideria and Van Hoil

Desi and Van Hoil love to build together.  Desi is a longtime resident of SL, and is the owner of Literature Alive!, SL's oldest non-profit literature simulation group.  While Van is newer to SL, he is a skilled builder.  He lives in the UK, and Desi lives in the US.

This is a free place for families to bring their Zooby babies! We offer free stage toys, free photo opportunities with pose balls, and a small gift store to help fund our garden.  By visiting our garden, you are agreeing to the following rules.

1.  This is a PG Garden safe for families and babies and avatars role playing the lives of children.  There will be no nudity, no swearing, no sexual content, and no "adult" babygirl/babyboy role playing.  There are other places on the grid to foster those role playing genres; please use the Search tool to find what you need.

2.  This Garden is free to use.  At no time will anyone ask you for money.  Do NOT give your Linden to strangers.  If you wish to make a donation, please do so in the kiosks.  The gift shop proceeds benefit The Children's Garden and Literature Alive!
