Community Garden- Almost Ready! The Weekly Challenge Update

Another busy week here. Thought I would share some of the pictures of the construction of the new community garden:
Construction of the "A.D.A Beds" Where mom and I applied for a plot- raised beds to make gardening a bit easier for those who can't bend or are in a wheelchair

Nice to have friends with big tools!
Compressing the gravel for wheelchair use

The neighbors keep a watchful eye on the garden

The wheelbarrow donated by one of the garden's neighbors with the wheel I put on from a childs bike!
