We are featuring two working gardens built by disabled gardeners, Simon Raulstone and Josh Spece.

Simon and his productive raised beds.

The first, is Simon’s fabulous vegetable garden and its progress over a two year span with photographs from Year 1, and  Year 2.

The second is Josh Spece’s successful garden that turned into a business! The gardens are beautiful, well cared for and very productive. Visit their gardens, websites and leave a message to congratulate them on their wonderful gardens.

Josh in the Garden Shop

This is just a small section of the gift shop in Josh’s garden shop.

Many Seed Catalogs are listed on the Resources page. Catalogs are a wonderful source of information, photos and introductions of new vegetables and plants for your garden. On dark winter days dream of spring planting and fall harvest of your vegetables. The mouth-watering photos in the catalogs will tell you how and where to plant for success.

Taller Beds Mean No Bending

Being outdoors is healthy and working in the garden gives meaning to the lives of all people, regardless of age, physical challenges, mental challenges or where they live.  We hope that this site will encourage everyone to get back to growing and nurturing plants and flowers.
