Accessible organic gardening is not only healthy, but it’s a great activity that can be adapted to different abilities. Wendy Crawford, founder of mobileWOMEN, demonstrates how she uses a customized raised bed that allows her wheelchair to fit under.”Since my C5-6 spinal cord injury, I’ve always wanted to garden, but didn’t think it was possible, until I was introduced to a raised accessible bed,” says Wendy.
