accessible Raised garden beds

Wheelchair Friendly Disabled Gardening

The Green Circle Garden consists of ten wheelchair accessible gardens designed to provide horticultural therapy for people of all ages. Green Circle Gardens allow users to reach all the cultivation area, the accessible urban gardens are suitable for children’s use and allow scope for creativity.

The circular layout of raised garden beds helps foster social interaction between gardeners, while the work itself improves fitness and acts as a liason between the senses of touch, sight and smell. The wheelchair accessible gardens can also be setup in different layouts to suit the available disabled gardening space or to cater for a large group in a school, care home or senior living home. Nine or ten accessible gardens create a circular layout which act as an enclosing wall: Serving as a refuge for those with Dementia or other disabilities who feel more relaxed with the comfort of a barrier to the outside. It provides a space for exercise, social interaction,  educational learning and keeping the mind and body active.

I’m a butterfly farmer in Illinois with educational outreach programs. I purchased three of these planters and planted them with butterfly host and nectar plants. The senior center program benefitted SO MUCH from being able to watch the complete monarch lifecycle in an upclose, hands on way. AWESOME product.

The Green Circle Garden has improved social interaction and integration of our residents. Growing their own herbs has helped increase appetite, they are now growing basil, parsley, chives, coriander and cherry tomatoes.

“Hi, I would like to mention how brilliant the accessible planters have been for my class who all have some degree of visual impairment. We have already grown two lots of salad leaves which have been tasted and eaten by adults and pupils and the sunflowers are currently the best in the school! Your system of accessible planting for our wheelchair pupils has made growing and caring for plants so much easier. Members of Owls class were able to be more independent in watering and planting seeds, bulbs especially as everything is at the right height. The seedlings which they were helped to transplant were protected from the slugs and snails because of the height and therefore grew in a more protected environment. In turn that gave better results and was more rewarding for the pupils. So thank you once again”
