Garden Accessibility Initiative

Our vision for the Garden Accessibility Initiative is to increase access to nature for adults with intellectual disabilities, thereby improving mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

The garden creates meaningful work for core members, assistants, volunteers, and community members. Since 2021, it has been an important way for our community to connect with friends safely in the era of COVID-19.

In summer 2022, we hope to add a level pathway throughout the garden, an accessible gathering area around the existing fire pit, several raised vegetable and flower beds, a small cold frame greenhouse, a rainwater collection system, and more.
