Let’s Break Ground on Something Big.

Your donation will help create the Ability Garden at Legacy Park, a therapeutic garden that offers free wellness programs to the disability community.

Trellis is moving its much-loved Ability Garden and programming to Decatur’s Legacy Park. The move will triple our garden space to support long-term growth and allow us to build a unique wheelchair-accessible community garden. Together, these will provide a rare opportunity for people with disabilities to become a part of a gardening community that will offer a deeper sense of connection and greater independence. Since 2017, Trellis has been delivering small group therapeutic gardening programs for adults living with a long-term disability such as spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, dementia and veterans with post-traumatic stress.

The hardships of disability and chronic illness are life-changing and often come with life losses – jobs, independence, and friendships. This reality, coupled with the social stigma of disability, often leads to a life of isolation and loneliness that can impact both mental and physical health that makes living a full life nearly impossible. Trellis is the only nonprofit organization in Atlanta solely dedicated to delivering therapeutic gardening programs to people living with disabilities.

The Ability Garden provides the disability community with equal access to fun and purposeful outdoor recreation, healthy food, and the proven benefits of being in nature — reducing stress, improving mood and memory. Our small group programs facilitate connection between people with shared life experiences, foster independence, and promote health and wellness by being active, learning new skills and growing fresh, healthy food.

We need community partners like you to make this all possible! See our sponsor benefit levels.
