Lani Carlson and Richard Brzozowski are working to develop a relationship between farmers in Franklin County and organizations supporting employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Connections made so far are with the University of Maine at Farmington's special education and assistive technology department, and with several local programs that support people with cognitive & intellectual disabilities to be employed and actively involved in their home communities.
Maine AgrAbility staff hosted the quarterly Advisory Council (AC) meeting on December 7 with ten advisory council members in Augusta. They reviewed AC member skills to promote within AgrAbility, upcoming events, and AgrAbility program activities from the last quarter.
