Mālama the Farmer, Caring for Yourself and Each Other- An AgrAbility Regional Workshop
This workshop will be held at the Grand Naniloa on October 17 & 18, 2023.
Regional AgrAbility Workshops are a great way to network with AgrAbility peers and other professionals that have a role in assisting farmers and agricultural workers.
This regional workshop was planned with and supported by the College of Tropical Agriculture & Human Resources-University of Hawaii Manoa and the Western Regional Agricultural Stress Assistance Program. October 17th will have sessions that include topics on WRASAP, AgrAbility, assistive technology, behavioral health resources and business planning. On October 18th we will tour local agricultural businesses.
In addition to those who are interested in assisting farmers with a disability or long-term health condition, this workshop would be helpful to:
– Service providers (VR, state agencies, governmental organizations)
– Agricultural professionals (Extension, FFA, ag educators)
– Occupational/Physical therapists, staff, teachers, and students
– Staff from other state AgrAbility projects and those working in ag safety, health, and wellness
