The University of Missouri – Columbia have recently started a new gardening site called Gardens for Every Body. It’s a site packed with information and gardening tips aimed specifically at those who struggle to enjoy their hobby because of some challenge to their physical bodies.
The elderly may find that their body can no longer cope with the rigorous strains that their previous gardening routines expected. While physically handicapped people may struggle to perform activities in the garden that they once were able to or would like to.
This site guides people in tools that they can use, styles of gardening that they can explore and ways that they can practically organise their gardens. And, if that’s not enough, residents in the area can apply for an in-person demonstration outlining some of the tools and techniques discussed.
This is great for gardening and a valuable site for those who are currently limited in their capacity to enjoy their hobby.
