Summary

Description

The goal of our project is to create an ADA accessible garden in our Education & Demonstration Gardens that the local Veterans Group of Higher Ground can tend for therapeutic and recreational purposes as well as re-integrating into civilian life by serving to help grow and sustain our local food, medicine and seed bank supplies. We envision this project as a collaborative effort between some of our local elementary age students in assisting with the artistic portion of the install (mosaic tiles, handprint impressions, etc.) and our local veterans as these two groups could potentially be of great benefit to one another.
