Re: Accessible Gardens

Hello all,
Try this book when it comes to accessibility features for gardens:  The
Enabling Garden:  Creating Barrier-Free Gardens by Gene Rothert,
Horticultural Therapy Manager & Curator of the Enabling Garden at Chicago
Botanic Garden.  All sorts of ideas including raised beds of different
heights to meet different needs, pathways, garden structures, etc.  Cool
pictures and ideas including adaptive tools.  Also, love the raised bed
garden plan sent, & the CASA raised beds--what are the caps made of?

Happy Thanksgiving,
Shelly

We are stardust  .  .  . we are golden  .  .  . and we've got to get
ourselves back to the garden.
