Beginning this spring, the trees will be tended in part by traumatic brain injury patients: trees take up less floor space, which means more room for wheelchairs, and they're easier for people with mobility issues to reach. The house also features raised plant beds, some of them installed on what look like water wheels that can be rotated with cranks for easier access.
Like Bair's job, the handicap-accessible hoop house is believed to be the first of its kind.
