I woud like to give my dad a garden

What would I "do" for someone this Spring? I would like to give my dad a garden. He has Alzheimer's and is not as active as he once was outdoors. He used to love gardening, but now he's not physically able to walk very far. I would love to plant a garden just outside his front window so he can enjoy watching his favorite vegetables grow. I think he would enjoy
reconnecting with his passion for gardening. Having one near his house would make it close enough that he could walk to and enjoy each day.
