A unique wheelchair-accessible garden is set to open on November 14 at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Known as the Ability Garden, the garden space will serve individuals living with physical or cognitive disabilities. 

Callanwolde partnered with the Trellis Horticultural Therapy Alliance to offer supported garden therapy programs to provide recreation, lessen social isolation, and empower the individuals it’s meant for through hands-on learning. 

Rachel Cochran, the co-founder of Trellis, said to Atlanta INTown, a news source in the region, that the goal of the garden is to reconnect individuals that have been disconnected from gardening and nature due to impaired mobility to experience nature.

She added that it’s Trellis’s goal to make gardening accessible for everyone.
