ABLE GARDENS 

As people age they sometimes find their health or mobility doesn’t permit them to keep up with the demands of sustaining their garden and surrounds. This can be very stressful and even lead to people ‘selling up’ or going into supported care earlier than they would like.

Able Gardens is more than a gardening service, we want to know what is important to you and from there we work with you to make it happen. Based on a ‘wellness approach’ we invite you to participate in creating a safe and low-maintenance garden that suits your unique capabilities and desires.

We have a strong emphasis on safety and will assist in identifying risks, e.g. pest, fire and trip risks and work with you to mitigate them.

HART Services' Able Gardens is a social-enterprise initiative that charges a fee-for-service hourly rate. Proceeds allow for further service delivery.

Sponsors 

Able Gardens, has received essential sponsorship and support.

NRCF Logo
Northern Rivers Community Foundation provided a start-up grant enabling the purchase of a trailer, mower and essential gardening equipment.

Bunnings Logo
Bunnings Warehouse Lismore is a Major Sponsor providing work teams twice a year to conduct backyard blitzes. Customers may apply to HART Services for selection. A blitz can completely transform overgrown and neglected gardens and yards. Bunnings are also proving discounted produce and material assistance.

fujixerox
Fuji Xerox has extended their sponsorship to HART Services making it possible to conduct a further two backyard blitzes each year.

As Able Gardens does not receive funding, the goodwill donated by volunteers and the support of our sponsors is imperative.
