I am in Gainesville. I have a 2.5 year old also. Not sure whata morning garden program is!
There are a lot of AP and alternative minded families here. You have to kind of know where to look though, I guess. There is a really big Ap group (80-90 members), but someone in it called DCF on a couple of families because she didn't agree with natural and alternative approaches to medicine, so I steer cleer of that group mostly now since the jerk is still lurking in there - never fessed up to being the caller. There are still lots of nice folks in it though. Theer are other smaller groups, not formally named.
A friend of mine runs a place called "Gainesville Creative Kids" which is for kids age 3-8, where they do movement, art, music classes - cheap and very crunchy in their focus, if that makes sense.
There are health food stores, organic produce and local produce a-plenty, home birth mid wives co-op.
What else can i tell you?
