MG (002)


Established in 2002, Michael’s Garden, a Division of ACCEL (Arizona Centers for Comprehensive Education and Life Skills), is an innovative day program, serving adults with special needs. Michael’s Garden provides life-long education and vocational training to individuals with functional disabilities over the age of eighteen.


Each day, Monday through Friday, clients come to Michael's Garden to train and work with an experienced professional staff, to create products that are shipped in 48 states and 2 countries, Canada and the UK.
