Facilitating Agrability

Accessibility and urban growing spacesPlanting a Seed for Accessibility in Urban Growing Spaces

This teach-in will promote a social model of disability in accessible design of growing spaces and empower communities to address accessibility issues with an inclusive language and mindset. Attendees will leave with strategies to facilitate "agrability" in their communities’ growing spaces. We will facilitate a dialogue on the importance of people with disabilities having the autonomy to participate in urban growing spaces.

This workshop is for those looking to create inclusionary urban growing spaces and building more just food systems in urban areas!
