Fairfax Friendship Gardens

In May 2016, I started working with a class of Special Needs students at Fairfax High School through Greenway Arts Alliance. We spent time building up two spaces near their classrooms into a garden of their design.
The gardens are meant to be accessible by all of the students, some of who require wheelchairs for access.
