Sensory Gardening is an empowerment programme aimed to break limitations and grow new possibilities for the visually impaired. Created by Plus Community Partnership and collaborating with Malaysian Association for the Blind and Children of Soil, the joy of gardening is introduced through the sense of smell, touch, hearing and taste.
The Sensory Gardening programme is open for sponsorships and is wonderfully accessible for all organisations to participate. Each sponsorship enables more visually impaired participants to learn the art of growing an edible garden.
One small plot at a time, this sustainable effort is making its mark as a first in Malaysia.
