We are building wheelchair-access to smell the roses. As far as we know, these are the only wheelchair-accessible roses at any garden in our region, accessible to the public during any of our free events or by private appointment.

The photo above is our “broken heart” path and patio area. Rose shrubs in this sunny space were donated and planted by the New England Rose Society. Stone dust and red bricks were donated by Collette Hanlon of Rowley, and Karen and Dave Moniz of Topsfield. The gray bricks were donated by Georgetown Building Supply of Georgetown. Thanks again to all helping to realize our vision! We now have 100 wheelchair-accessible roses, many blooming continuously from June through November.

With Gratitude and the Grit to Get it Done!
