My Intention for this blog is to ...

  • share with you some stories of how Karen Romanowski of Brookfield Farm and I came to work together with others in the community to build this garden and how our accessible garden came to be.
  • share some thoughts on the value of accessible gardens and other recreational spaces in a community that are accessible to all people, including a simple introduction to the concept of Universal Design.
  • talk about why gardening is an activity that can be shared by all and brings gifts to all.
  • invite you to participate with your ideas, thoughts and questions.
  • and yes – hopefully provide you with some information, including an Accessible Garden RESOURCE LIST for accessible gardening tools,  books and articles on accessible gardening, links to other accessible gardens, and other information that may be helpful to you or others about how to build your own accessible garden in your community.
