Are you a farmer or rancher struggling with physical or emotional limitations? Or a professional who works with that population? This year, The Colorado AgrAbility Project is offering a series of three webinars instead of our usual in-person sessions. The first webinar will focus on issues and resources for women in Ag. Another session will provide info for veterans who are in—or interested in exploring—Ag careers, and need resources for accessing land and equipment through grants or low interest loans.
We’ll also discuss how to prepare a portfolio that gets the attention of funders and lenders. Our final session will help demystify the Agricultural Mediation Program. Dr. Dalsted will explain how it works, when it works, and how to put it to best use. We look forward to seeing you!

Join us for our Winter Workshop Webinars!

AgrAbility’s Winter Workshops are going virtual! Join us in January for three webinars focused on Women in Ag, Resources for Veterans, and Agricultural Mediation. We look forward to seeing you!
