What is an Enabling Garden?
The Guelph Enabling Garden (GEG) is a multi-use garden designed for children, the elderly, families, but especially for those community members with varying degrees of physical and cognitive abilities. The key features of an Enabling Garden are:
- Sensory Interest (sight, sound, smell, touch)
- Reflective areas as with any garden
- Active programming so the experience of gardening is made available to all segments of the population
The concept for the Guelph Enabling Garden began in 1999 when a number of organizations in the city that support those with physical and cognitive challenges, including the City of Guelph, identified the fact that there were no public garden facilities for this segment of Guelph’s population.
