The Disabled Independent Gardeners Association (DIGA) provides opportunities for people with physical disabilities to actively participate in gardening.
Operating in Metro Vancouver BC, we offer workshops, garden tours, customized adaptive tools, and our volunteers work one-on-one with DIGA members tending to fully accessible plots in community gardens. Our community gardens have wheelchair-accessible pathways and raised beds. Many also offer roll-under table-top gardens.
Gardening offers many quality of life benefits and social inclusion when working together in community gardens, which is why we encourage active participation, from planning their garden, tending to plants, and sharing their harvests with the support of helpful volunteers. Our knowledgeable volunteers can advise and support gardening, lend a hand tending to gardens or arrange custom garden tools for people with physical disabilities.
