The joys and benefits of gardening, from fresh veggies to therapeutic effects to a stronger sense of community, can touch everyone. At the Ohana Kuleana Community Garden we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to discover and explore those joys and benefits.
We have been working with Southwest Center for Independence to make the garden more accessible for everyone. Earlier this season we built some raised beds that will especially help those with limited mobility garden. But we still needed to put in a wheel chair accessible path around the bed.
That's where Home Depot stepped in. Joe"Buck" D'aleo, Bruce, Annah McConaha, and Jo arranged to donated all of the supplies as well as provide their skilled project leaders to design and build it with us.
We had a blast getting the foundation ready for the pathway. Spirits were high as we talked about next season and the wonderful new people we would meet when they start gardening here.
Before and after!
If you would like to help us complete the wheelchair accessible path join us this Saturday, October 25th from 9am-11am. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Bring sunscreen, close toed shoes, and be ready to make things happen!
