DIGA hosts workshops, get-togethers and other events at various times - and venues - through the year.
Educational workshops are held at
botanical gardens or horticultural and community centres, led by an expert guest speaker
drawn from the professional gardening community, who provides insight into
plants, techniques and garden design. Instruction is
tailored specially for people with physical disabilities and includes:
Creating a barrier-free garden
Getting to, from and around garden areas. This includes path width and material, grading, convenience of watering
- Use of containers, raised beds, and other enabling
Members are introduced to the most important adaptations:
container gardening and use of raised beds. These techniques raise the soil level to keep the plants within easy reach from a wheelchair or scooter.
Members consider selection, nurturing and care of garden items. We consider plant height,
colour, fragrance, and location.
