Oklahoma AgrAbility Extension – Changes have arrived!  The National AgrAbility Project now has a new look. So, Oklahoma does to. We are seeing green! 

The Project now has a crisp, agricultural look. The Oklahoma AgrAbility newsletter, Web site and all other forms of communication and educational materials will also soon be showing the new green color.

The newsletter changes include design and content. We will now feature a farmer success story on page one of every issue. Page two, and sometimes three, will feature partner updates. Page three will have a resource feature from Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, Oklahoma ABLE Tech or the Langston University School of Physical Therapy. Future events and the Project’s news features will be listed on page four.

As changes are being made, and any other time, if you have suggestions for the web site, newsletter or other materials we produce please let me know. You can contact Amanda Erichsen at 405-744-2398 or The partners of Oklahoma AgrAbility want you to have full and easy access to your resources!
