Gardening often requires getting down on the ground to tend to plants, but this new Common Roots Urban Farm garden is created to be an accessible space for those who are differently abled. The garden is wheelchair-accessible and features garden beds that are elevated off the ground to be the optimal height for those who use mobility aids.

The Common Roots Urban Farm garden, found in Halifax, acts as a great place for those who are in wheelchairs or those going through rehabilitation can go to enjoy some therapeutic gardening. The garden is situated near to a rehabilitation center as well as an emergency room, which makes it a great spot for patients to patronize. The organization plans to also create a tactile garden for those with visual impairments as well as more paths and garden beds that are wheelchair-accessible.
