When we arrived at our happy home for the week, we were greeted with one of these:
We were charmed. And when we read about the group that assembled our bucket, we were charmed even more. They’re created by a group called Cape Abilities, a Cape Cod non-profit organization that provides jobs, homes and other services for people with disabilities. The name comes from their belief that “each person has abilities, not disabilities.” How lovely is that?
Next we read that Cape Abilities has a farm where 80 people with disabilities work in all aspects of farm management. And the farm has a nursery kind of place where one can shop. So, of course, we went for a visit:
Charming, yes? I particularly like this spot to sit and watch your garden grow:
But that’s not all–you can adopt a bee or even a garden patch!
They also stock a mighty fine line of breads (we bought a loaf so I know this to be a fact) and some other things that shall remain nameless because I bought them as Christmas gifts for people who sometimes read this blog. It was a delightful place filled with delightful people and while—unlike my travel companions—I am not a special ed teacher, I enjoyed it very, very much. If you’re on the Cape, check them out! If not, consider adopting a bee or a garden patch. It’s a good cause, well done.
