Plans for wheelchair accessible vegetable garden beds

Hello, I am helping design a garden for NDIS participants and would love to know if anyone has any plans or photos of great designs for wheelchair accessible garden beds.  They will be predominantly for growing vegetables.  I have a huge site to work with (1300sqm) so I have room to make many garden beds for people of varying abilities, in the long term public will also be invited to use this garden.   We could purchase some but we are hoping to get materials donated and having a working bee to get them built. Thankyou in advance

Re: Plans for wheelchair accessible vegetable garden beds

Hello @Djthornbird

 

It's great that you've received fantastic advice from @StevieB. We would be more than happy to help you with planning out your project. Using 1300 square meters for gardening is a great idea. Making the entire site wheelchair accessible is an interesting design challenge. Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the area and the measurements on each side. This will give our members an idea of how the plot is laid out and allow us to give you a comprehensive recommendation. I'm sure our members are keen to contribute their knowledge to this project. Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing the photos.

 

Eric
