City Farm SLO is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower the next generation to live healthier, more prosperous lives through sustainable agriculture and farm-based education. Located in San Luis Obispo on the outskirts of San Luis Ranch, City Farm SLO’s latest project known as “A Garden for All” aims to create a fully accessible garden that can serve all the students in the community they serve. A key part of this project is the pathway connecting the various garden elements which were previously not accessible to wheelchairs and susceptible to water damage and flooding during rain events. This pathway was to be 5 feet wide, bordered by pressure treated two by six boards, with three inches of decomposed granite over three inches of road base. The execution of this part of the project proved to be a challenge, taking both more time and funding to complete than originally planned. However, through diligent effort and a considerable amount of manual labor, the project was still delivered ahead of schedule and under budget. This was accomplished largely through the support and donations of the community combined with a dedicated student and the occasional hard-working volunteer.
