Raised beds have been specifically made to be handicapped accessible with one raised bed made specifically for individuals who use wheelchairs, one raised bed for individuals who use canes and have to stand, and two standard raised garden beds. This community garden was made possible in partnership with United North, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, and the Lucas County CITE Program who built the raised beds.
