Cost: Free.

Do you  catch yourself ever saying, “If only I could!” when thinking about tending to your flower or vegetable garden? Do you wish you could garden more, if only an aching back, sore knee or other physical limitation weren’t in the way? Don’t let a physical limitation prevent you from communing and creating with nature!  There are tools that can make a difference and techniques in design and materials that allow gardening to “be accessible!”

It’s true! By using Garden Smart-Garden Easy techniques and resources presented at this workshop, you will discover that less is more! Less bending and less watering can mean more beauty and enjoyment! Sussex County Master Gardeners welcome you to attend this seminar and learn all about Accessible Gardening.  You can be an active gardener, regardless of age or mobility. Weather permitting,  visit our Demonstration Garden and see how accessible gardening techniques are put to beautiful and productive use!  Garden Smart -Garden Easy Accessible Garden workshop will make garden enjoyable for all. Register here.
