Presented by the Great Lakes ADA Center and the ADA National Network
This session will cover how agriculture can be a military veteran’s next mission, especially after acquiring a physical or mental impairment during one’s service. Individuals with a variety of disabilities who have an interest in farming, ranching, and gardening will learn how assistive technology and other resources provide access to the world of agriculture. An overview of AgrAbility, a USDA-sponsored program that assists agricultural workers with disabilities, will be provided. Participants will have an opportunity to ask the speakers questions following the presentation.
