gardening for seniors with mobility issues

Has anyone ever thought about providing access to community gardening areas by constructing raised beds that are at an appropriate height for someone in a wheelchair or mobility scooter so that they can be involved? I'm fairly certain that there are many seniors who have given up on gardening because of mobility issues and who would love the opportunity to be out in the sunshine and growing delicious food and flowers. Many seniors facilities provide transportation so getting them to the community garden would not very often be an issue.
