This is such a great forum. And I need your help. I am recently handicapped from a car accident. It is only a broken hip, but it has been debilitating during peak gardening time. It has also given me alot of time and alot to think about. I've always been very healthy and it can be taken away so quickly. Anyway, I'm secretary of our garden club and I'm going do a little impromptu talk on planning an accessible garden at our next meeting. So many of our members are older and I worry about them. The ideas on this forum are great. My question is, if you were to plan ahead what would you do to your garden to make it more accessable? I really liked the virtual tour of "Gene's miniature apple tree garden" (those are some amazing plants), Lasagna gardening, and the leaky stock tank as raised bed idea (I love recycling) to name a few.
I also work in the severely handicapped room of the high school and I may be able to use some of these ideas with our students.
Any advice will be valuble to me. Thanks Leah Odzinski
