Smiling gardner History

The first Centre for Inclusive Living (CIL) was started in Berkeley, California in 1973.  A young student called Ed Roberts had mounted a campaign to be allowed into the University.  Even though he had all the right qualifications he had been refused entry because he used a powerchair and breathing respirator and the University felt his impairment made him unfit to attend the course.
