Calling all NM Farmers with disabilities – FREE Workshop!

Join us for a FREE! Regional AgrAbility Event on September 27th and 28th at the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI).
This event is open to everyone, especially farmers and ranchers with disabilities, as well as those who support them. Hosted on the SIPI campus, this event is an effort to enhance the relationships between the AgrAbility Project and the 1994 land grant institutions.
Presentations focus on how existing, new, and prospective tribal farmers/ranchers and others with disabilities and other functional limitations can remain or become successful in small scale farming and gardening. Join us to learn about the USDA AgrAbility project. The attached agenda includes physical rehabilitation issues of farmers and ranchers, microscale farming, adaptive tools and technology, and worksite assessment. Day 1 offers an introduction to AgrAbility and Assistive Technology. Day 2 features a Farmer Panel and presentations from multiple NM resource providers.
Registration Deadline: Monday, Sept. 19, 2022.
