Community Comes Together to Create Sensory Garden for the Blind and Visually Impaired

NEWTOWN, PA, October 13 2017 - The Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, a nonprofit servicing men, women, and children who have experienced significant vision loss, partnered with several community organizations to create a sensory garden for the blind and visually impaired.

BCABVI sought to give their clients and families a place to create new opportunities, gain independence, and explore using all different senses. With the financial support from Foundations Community Partnership and Doylestown Rotary, BCABVI was able to begin designing their garden. Collaborating with the experts from Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, every feature and plant was specifically chosen to emphasize the remaining senses of people who are blind or visually impaired.

Volunteers from Johnson & Johnson’s Janseen Cares Program and Lower Bucks Chambers of Commerce Alumni Association helped clients prep the courtyard for irrigation systems, pocket meadows, raised beds, and outdoor seating. Each week a new set of hands helped BCABVI add to its rapidly growing garden and were an essential factor in transforming a vision into reality.

Finally, after a year’s worth of discussion and planning, the Community Sensory Garden is in full swing. Not only has it brought natural beauty to BCABVI’s courtyard, it has also instilled values in their clients. A successful gardening program has been established with members that meet once a month to prepare for the upcoming planting season.

Without the continued support of community partners and volunteers the Sensory Garden would not be an oasis for the men, women, and children who benefit from BCABVI’s services.
