In this episode of ADA Live!

The roots of agriculture run deep in our country, from large farms to community gardens, and it’s vital to the quality of our lives. We do not often think about how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to large farms, community gardens, or neighborhood farmer’s markets. With spring around the corner, many of us are ready to be outside and get into the dirt by clearing, tilling, and planting.

On this episode of ADA Live! we’ll be digging into the topic of the ADA, accessible farming and gardening with our guest, Paul Jones, Manager of the Breaking New Ground (BNG) Resource Center and the National AgrAbility Project located at Purdue University. Please join us as we learn about the important work of AgrAbility, accessible agriculture, and relevant requirements under the ADA.
