The Learning Garden presents:
Vegetable Garden Series: Building an ADA Compliant Raised Garden
Thursday, March 23, 2023
10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
NC Cooperative Extension
Buncombe County Center
49 Mount Carmel Road
Presenter: Alan Wagner, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
Gardening has always been a popular activity for individuals, but as one ages it becomes more difficult. Those who are wheelchair-bound and other people with disabilities find it hard to take care of a garden. Accessible gardens such as raised beds offer a chance for these individuals to still grow vegetables and enjoy gardening.
Join Alan Wagner as he explains how he built an ADA compliant raised bed. He will go through all the parameters on how high to build the bed, the dimensions of the bed, and the materials he used. ADA compliance is short for the Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design.
This program will be held outside in the Vegetable growing area of The Learning Garden where the ADA compliant raised bed will be located. We will meet indoors first and then go outside. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
