The Estonian Cultural Garden was dedicated June 19, 1966. On the first annual Kid’s Day in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, kids (of all ages) learned about the Estonian language, culture, history, geography and more.
Teevi Champa of the Estonian Cultural Garden was one of the co-chairs of Kid’s Day in the Gardens. When the group arrived at the Estonian Garden Teevi and Erika Puussarwelcomed them and explained the various activities. The kids colored pictures of a Cornflower which is the national flower of Estonia.
Then story time with Erika Puussar where the kids learned to say dog (koer) in Estonian, and they played the Bees in the Garden game led by Teevi Champa that every kid plays in Estonia.
