RE: Elderly gardeners


Please check out our archives at http://www.community_garden@mallorn.com
where we have several discussions about community gardens and the elderly
including raised beds suitable for wheelchair gardening. You also might want
to email Elmer Morehouse of  the Southfield Senior Citizen's Garden (
Physa@aol.com) who runs a rather extensive Senior Citizen's Garden.

Good luck!
