A garden is sprouting at the Family Enrichment Network in Johnson City, but it doesn’t feature tulips, daffodils or violets.  The garden, in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, instead features lots of pinwheels.

Organizers say pinwheels are a sign of happy, carefree childhoods that every child deserves.

The Pinwheels for Prevention program is a growing movement committed to stopping child abuse before it starts and looks to recognize efforts in New York State to change the approaches to prevention of child abuse and neglect.
