What is the Access Grows Initiative? 

Access Grows is a community garden initiative providing access and inclusion in community garden spaces for individuals with diverse abilities.

The past 12 months of sheltering-in-place has significantly impacted the quality of life individuals with disabilities experience every day and their ability to participate in their communities. ARTS InCommunity is addressing these challenges our individuals face through an innovative and new initiative called Access Grows. 

This Spring, Access Grows is connecting individuals with disabilities to local community garden spaces throughout Metro-Atlanta for gardening workshops, raised bed garden plots, and backyard gardening for those continuing to shelter-in-place. 

We need your support to grow. 



Every gift helps us grow! Sponsor a garden plot, donate plants and materials, and make a general donation.


Get down in the weeds! Volunteer to prep our garden plots, lead a gardening workshop, build an evergreen project, and more. 


Join Access Grows this Spring and Summer by leading a virtual or in-person gardening class individuals with developmental disabilities.
