Through the efforts of several hard-working farmer veterans in Maine, and the support of the National FVC, the Maine chapter of the Farmer Veteran Coalition was finalized November 5, 2015. During this meeting the Maine AgrAbility project coordinator, Lani Carlson, will be appointed to the board of directors and co-chair of the advisory council board.
The work of Maine AgrAbility and one of its clients was showcased in the Sunday edition of the Oxford Hills Sun Journal. The article discussed adaptive equipment and accessibility issues that were addressed to help the farm "ensure that everyone has an equal advantage to work on or visit a farm."
