Georgia AgrAbility hosted a webinar April 3 with Dr. Therese Willkomm, "Creating AT Solutions for Vision and Hearing Impairment". There are hundreds of assistive technology solutions that can be created in minutes to accommodate rural and farm families who experience vision or hearing loss. This webinar discussed and demonstrated an assortment of devices that can be quickly made.
April 18, Georgia AgrAbility sponsored a workshop titled, "Greenhouses 101." It was held at the University of Georgia Greenhouse Complex where participants were engaged in an interactive workshop in which they became more familiar with the basics of growing in a greenhouse, learned about types of produce and flowers suitable for growing in a greenhouse, and types of greenhouses available. Hands-on activities included propagation and care of starter plants
Georgia AgrAbility staff recently held a staff meeting where fellow AgrAbility team members Mason Dean and Kyle Haney demonstrated how to install a Ghost Controls automatic gate opener. This is a common assistive technology recommendation for clients that the Georgia AgrAbility project serves so it was beneficial for fellow staff to see how the system operates.
