What’s Happening with Maine AgrAbility?
What a great NTW! Thanks to all who ventured to Maine for the 2018 NTW in Portland, with a huge thank you to the anchors of the planning committee, Tess & JoBeth! During the NTW, five Maine AgrAbility staff members presented three workshops, and along with clients, ME staff participated in two additional panel discussions.
Maine AgrAbility Specialist Ellen Gibson presented a “Gardening As You Age” workshop to Master Gardener and garden club members. She will also present a two-part session about AgrAbility as part of Belfast Senior College Spring 2018 course, “Keep on Gardening”.
