FUN for All

It’s been a while since we’ve posted an update – but now FUN is back and FUN-er than ever. Things have changed at the Bee Happy Garden, here’s a quick update.


As announced in May, a second set of beds was added, then a fence as some critters found our seedlings too succulent to resist. An efficient drip line irrigation system was installed, that not only saves time but saves water. Following manufacturing setbacks and shipping delays that everyone experienced during COVID, the much anticipated paved pathways were installed and completed in August. Soon after, high-sided raised beds were put in place. This provides an opportunity for our volunteers who use wheelchairs to work at a comfortable level.

Many, many thanks to the Tactical Landscaping Company who did a   phenomenal job installing the beautiful pavers. Heartfelt gratitude for the support of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, whose grant made the hardscape possible and who are doing amazing things every day to improve the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by paralysis.
