Since my skiing accident in 1995, diagnosed as an incomplete paraplegic, I have tried to find things that I could do with this new body, despite pain and barriers I might face. Pottery was a great activity for a while, until I developed a neuropathy in my arms, too.

At this point, I need your help! I love gardening, and my local community garden wants to build more raised, accessible beds for people with disabilities like me. Simply click at DeLoach Vineyards (http://www.deloachcommunitygardens.com/) and vote for my Magnuson Community Garden (2nd from the left, top row). If in the top 5, we'll get a $5K grant. Ideally you can vote *once each day* from now to Aug. 1, but any votes you can give would help me a lot. Please support my efforts to keep active!
