Farming with Vision Loss- Voices from the Past

  • 11 Aug 2021
  • 3:30 PM
Join AgrAbility for a webinar series by Therese Willkomm hosted by Georgia AgrAbility.  This will be an interactive webinar series, so bring your own stories and experiences to share. 

For those of you who have not had the privilege of meeting Dr. Willkomm, she is known internationally as the MacGuyver of Assistive Technology.  She grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and learned she had to be creative to help keep the farm running.  She turned that knowledge into her lifelong passion to make low-cost adaptations and fabrications for individuals with disabilities.   She has a long and rich history working with AgrAbility projects across the nation.  You can read a great article about her at https://www.eastersealstech.com/2014/08/27/crucial-part-creative-solution/   Therese recently published her third book on assistive technology, and it will be featured on the last webinar of the series.
