At the October 10, 2020 RVACG Board meeting, Amber and Cait presented a proposal for barrier free or enabled gardening. The Board decided to develop a demonstration garden highlighting alternative gardening techniques for people who have limited mobility, physical limitations, mental challenges, and other issues that prohibit traditional inground gardening.
The demonstration plot will have various ways of doing container and raised bed gardening. The plan is for this demonstration plot to be ready for the 2021 gardening season. People who might be interested in having their own raised beds should contact us so that we may plan a plot specifically for your needs.
Cait Bolt is our advisor and gave us a demonstration on different containers and different ways to help gardeners needing an alternative way of gardening. The above picture is Cait with some of her suggestions.
More information will be forthcoming as the demonstration garden is developed.
