This winter, the Colorado AgrAbility Project is offering a series of free, informational workshops across the state to support agricultural communities and connect people with valuable resources related to farm and ranch safety, aging in agriculture, and how to get the most out of your mental engine with stress management techniques.

The Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) is a partnership between Colorado State University Extension and Goodwill Industries of Colorado. The program is funded in part by a grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to provide information, education, and services to farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers and their families with disabilities, illnesses, or conditions. This unique collaboration promotes independence in production agriculture by helping workers find the help they need to begin, remain, or regain employment on their farm or ranch.
Thanks to the Colorado AgrAbility project, Colorado farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture are able to continue working, despite a long term illness, permanent injury, aging issues or other physical challenges.
