What is Adaptive Gardening?
Adaptive gardening offers a myriad of ways for gardeners of all ages with a limited range of motion, the wheelchair bound, or anyone wanting to reduce stress on their joints, to identify what works for them in their garden according to their personal physical realities.
My approach will help you think through what you may need in the future, so you can make changes now and not have to undo your hard work later.
The objectives of adaptive gardening are threefold:
1 To raise awareness of adaptive techniques that enable gardeners to re-think how and when they garden for greater ease.
2 To describe ways gardens can be changed or modified to ensure the safety and comfort of the gardener.
3 To adapt their favorite tools to increase their usability or to replace them with more ergonomic tools on the market.
