This paper outlines the design, coordination, and construction efforts to build the Accessible Planter Boxes for the City Farm SLO’s Garden for All. The Garden for All was a concept created by the City Farm SLO staff to meet the need for an accessible learning space for students. The full design for the Garden for All also included mobile benches and tables, a shade structure, and decomposed granite pathways that were completed by other students. This project included the construction of 6 raised planter beds of differing heights and designs. Each planter bed was approximately 10 feet long and varied in height and structure. The planter boxes were designed with ADA requirements in mind in order to make the space available for all that come to the farm. From preconstruction to completion, the project lasted about 8 months with approximately 3 months of construction. The construction of this project was an extraordinary learning experience and correlated to many of the learning objectives in the construction management department.
