Spring is almost here and there’s no better time to start planning and planting your dream garden. Whether indoors, outdoors or upside down — flowers, foliage or food-focused — the options are plentiful.
Our cover story is about accessible gardening and its many benefits. I’d like to tell you about how my wife’s and my gardening experience enriched our lives and prepared us for making a leap we never even considered until it happened.
In this column, I’ll be looking at a different DIY project or “gear hack” for wheelchair users.
Converting a bus to an accessible home on wheels.
Q. I have owned a home located on a steep hill, but changes caused by my quadriplegia now make it more difficult for me to travel locally. The steep grade on nearby streets and sidewalks also makes it dangerous to travel in my wheelchair. I want to move to more level ground.

Erin Saari's real possibility of recovery; Joystick steering system for adaptive sailing; Accessible tiny home
I use a power wheelchair and had saved up money for the down payment on a mortgage. There will be several modifications needed to make this home accessible. One of the first places I turned for assistance was a government agency but was disappointed to learn that I have accumulated too much money and that my salary alone surpasses their limitation. Are there other resources available to people like me so that we can make access improvements or repairs?
