Opportunity Blooms for Students in The Day School

Opportunity Blooms for Students in The Day School

Students at The Day School at The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh braved gray skies to plant fresh flowers at Pittsburgh's first ADA-accessible garden beds.

The new garden beds on Pittsburgh's East End offer a more inclusive experience with wheelchair-accessible aisles and raised beds.The new beds are an addition to one that already existed at the First United Methodist Church in Shadyside. 

A grant from the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD) enabled the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy to build the garden beds in Spring 2018.

Students from The Children's Institute became primary stewards of the new accessible garden area. From weeding to planting, work in the garden helps students to develop skills, while also providing physical and occupational therapy for students. 

Thank you to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy for making these garden beds possible.
