Ohio AgrAbility Project and Safe Haven Farm visited Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, Ohio. The Bittersweet Farms provide a variety of programs and services for adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorders. Their goal is to encourage interaction through vocational, residential, community living, transitional school, and recreational programs. Also, Bittersweet Farms provides a range of educational and consulting services to address a variety of needs. The OAP would like to establish a collaborative group of peers both directly in the service of these communal efforts and in the guidance of these endeavors.
Ohio AgrAbility Project met with Common Grounds Community Church (CGCC) in North Lima, Ohio. The CGCC helps individuals and communities thrive through agriculture by equipping people for better futures through agriculture-based therapy, education, and vocational trainings.
