Lani Carlson presented an "Assistive Technology and Agriculture" presentation to two groups of high school students at the '4-H Connecting Kids to Campus' event held at the University of Maine campus on April 19th. She presented information using the NAP on-line resource, "Assistive Technology Curriculum for Rural Youth". The hands-on project was to adapt hand tools to accommodate different limitations. This activity generated much discussion and proved to be a great event!

Maine AgrAbility presented, in coordination with the Maine Forest Service and FSA, at a local high school diversity day. The project's non-profit partners, Alpha One and Goodwill, collaborated to present "Gardening Gracefully as you Age" to a Parkinson's support group with providers and family members, as well as to a group of Cumberland County Master Gardeners. The information was well received and increased awareness of the Maine AgrAbility Project.
