About This Deal
Very few community gardens are accessible to wheelchair users. Garden Station provides a community garden with 17 garden plots in which local residents can grow fresh vegetables and commune with nature. Since its 2008 inception, the garden’s green thumbs have hoped to construct plots accessible by wheelchair, but experienced barriers including additional costs and planning.
Garden Station has recently installed a wheelchair ramp and ADA-accessible entryway, and now volunteers aim to build wheelchair-accessible community-garden beds for residents with disabilities. Three 2-foot-wide and 6 foot-long garden beds will sit in each 18-foot-long table, which sits 36 inches off the ground. The beds all have 6 inches–8 inches of soil to accommodate growing vegetables. The specifications of the beds allow wheelchair users to easily access the table, reach across the bed, dig into the soil, and plant seeds. Garden Station requires additional funding to purchase untreated, weather-resistant western-red cedar to ensure that the plants the beds produce will be free of unwanted chemicals and safe to eat.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help improve access to Garden Station’s gardening beds for disabled residents. If G-Team members raise $320, then Garden Station can purchase untreated cedar wood, brackets, concrete, and hardware to construct two wheelchair-accessible garden beds. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding another accessible garden bed.
