Build a backyard paradise for a remarkable group of clients who have developmental disabilities, like John (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=547x4UaYTGY&feature=youtu.be) & Jodi (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI5rXWl8RuU&feature=youtu.be). As a Gardening Guru, you have the unique opportunity transform our yards into enjoyable places for our clients to relax. Current Gardening Gurus like the congregation at The Church of St. John the Divine (http://www.vitaliving.org/river-oaks-church-hosts-faith-in-action-weekend-for-those-with-disabilities/), built a walkway for our clients to enjoy a new garden at their home. What kind of yard beatification will you design to enhance the lives of this special group of individuals?
