Addition of An Accessible Garden

One of our team members had the idea of adding an accessible garden to the house. Not only will this allow us to expand the educational reach of the project, but it will also provide a place for people to meet after they tour the house. We envision, perhaps, instructors sitting with their class to discuss what they've seen. Maybe like-minded individuals will find themselves congregating there and engaging in conversation. We are excited about the possibilities.

We've posted a picture of project in process, to give those of you who are new to the SL concept a better idea of how this is accomplished. If you would like more information about accessible gardens, visit: http://www.ncpad.org/gardening/index.php?section=overview.

On another note, we are still struggling with finding a really good name for the project. Our working title is The Live-Ability Home, which is certainly a better choice than The eXtension Family Caregiving Second Life Project...

However, if you have some ideas for us, we would love to hear from you.

Here is a picture of the outside of the house, just to give it some context. We have a slideshow of some of the assistive technology devices that can be found inside. You'll note that we have also added a ramp and some other cool features. Again, your ideas are welcome!
