West Virginia

WV AgrAbility has partnered with Youth Safe Farms, a USDA grant through WV Extension Safety and Health.  This grant promotes farm safety though family participation in identifying farm hazards and collectively crafting solutions to minimize or eliminate hazards.  Staff will be working to incorporate AgrAbility into this project’s educational process.

WV AgrAbility  staff had the opportunity to promote awareness of AgrAbility, disabilities, and assistive technology at the West Virginia Farm Bureau Annual Conference, November 7-8 in Flatwoods.  AgrAbility reinforced the idea that increased safety and injury prevention can be achieved by the implementation of assistive technology.
