Ohio AgrAbility Project shared the AgrAbility message with the Ashtabula County Technical and Career Campus Horticulture class at their Jefferson, Ohio campus on March 14. The class is made up of high school students interested in pursuing an agricultural career.

The Ohio AgrAbility Project officially initiated the Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) peer to peer group for farmers in Ohio who suffer from this complex malady. By providing individuals with opportunities to discuss their similar conditions, remedies that work, and the challenges of working in agriculture, Ohio AgrAbility hopes to find ways to address the complexities related to this disability.

On March 4, the AG4ag program will have delivered a trailer mounted lift to an OAP member at Sunset Stables and a Life Essentials Mobility Scooter to an OAP member at Cornwell Farms in Arlington, Ohio. The AG4ag program provides funding for adaptive and assistive technology in Ohio. Attorney General Mike DeWine provided funding to the Ohio AgrAbility Project in order to assist farmers.
