Community gardens help to build lasting relationships in neighborhoods. But for disabled or older adults, our traditional 8-inch high beds pose a real challenge.
Help an older or disabled person garden with us by sponsoring an accessible garden bed. Our 24-inch high accessible beds allows those with mobility limitations to stay engaged, get their hands dirty, and be a full participant in the garden.
Donate today to sponsor a garden bed!
You supply the funds, we’ll supply the volunteers to build it.
Converting one of our standard height beds to an accessible one costs about $400 for lumber, supplies and soil. Our goal is to convert all 33 beds at Cherry Street Community Garden.
An engraved donor sign will display your name when you donate a full accessible bed in gratitude for your donation.
Staying connected, healthy food, and being active are critical to happiness and well being for everyone. Help a disabled or older adult by sponsoring a garden bed today!
