The Mobile Classroom project is one element of the larger “Garden for All” project at City Farm SLO. The “Garden for All” project has created a garden that is accessible to mobility limited people, such as those in wheelchairs. The Mobile Classroom is 3 picnic tables with 6 movable benches. The tables are not be connected to the benches which allow a person in a wheelchair to roll up to the table. The picnic tables are 6’ long, 40” wide, and 29” tall. The benches are 6’ long, 14.5” wide, and 18” tall. The supporting elements of the tables and benches are Douglass Fir. The top elements are Redwood. The Tables and benches have matching design and material for aesthetic value. Additionally, the client requested a lettuce wash table. This table is 8’ tall, 3’ wide, and 3’ tall. The table has four legs of Douglas Fir. The wash table has a ½” hardware cloth top which will allow water permeability when washing lettuce. All wooden elements have been treated with clear coat decking sealer. The goal is to have the tables and benches last a long time and withstand the elements. The total cost of this project was $1,269.
