Innovative Practice Project
AgrAbility is a program for farmers and ranchers who have experienced injury or illness to continue their lifestyles of agriculture production. Since 2008, representatives from Oregon State University (OSU), Pacific University (Pacific), Goodwill Industries International, Inc. (Goodwill), Access Technologies, Inc. (ATI) and Oregon State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (OVRS) have met regularly to develop and implement the Oregon AgrAbility project.
The Oregon AgrAbility Project continues to be an ongoing innovative practice project for third year students at Pacific. Most recently in 2011, Stefanie Fendrick, Brandon Johnson, and Jill Peacock became involved with the project. Brandon, Jill and Stefanie focused on several areas: USDA grant proposal submission, co-hosting a national AgrAbility workshop, conducting agricultural worksite assessments, creating marketing tools, and continued networking strategies through conference attendance.
This document consists of the Innovative Practice Project Presentation, USDA grant proposal, work-site assessment write-up(s), WOTA proposal, public relations document, agricultural worksite assessment flyer, and the 2011 Oregon AgrAbility Project National Workshop advertisement.
