Center of Hope installs new garden path
The Center of Hope installed a new garden path made possible by a grant from Autism Speaks. The path, constructed of crushed gravel, leads to, and around our produce garden area, making the garden more physically accessible for our participants who have limited mobility
“It will make the garden more accessible to our participants with physical limitations. Previously they were unable to go into the garden space due to the unevenness of the grass and it was difficult to get people in wheelchairs into the space. We have already started using it and many participants have commented how nice it is to be able to use the garden and access it,” said Kelley Peterson, director of participant services.
The garden, planted and maintained by our participants, promotes a healthy lifestyle while building job skills.
