The public garden for “Bloom no kaze” is public spaces to encourage communication between local people and disabled children who use the care center “Bloom no kaze”. Before this project, the place was an abandoned forest and not open to public but because of construction of the care center, the garden has been renovated as a public community garden. Multiple paths are set to walk freely between trees and also accessible for wheel chairs users.
