Gardening for all!

  

(Updated June 2012)

DIGA:

In the Metro Vancouver area find a community gardening plot with the Disabled Independent Gardening Association:

http://www.disabilityfoundation.org/diga/

The TETRA organization will make tools adapted to your needs for free.  Just supply the equipment yourself.

 

The Can You Dig It (CYDI) initiative tackles the challenge of social isolation through gardening.
