How to Continue Gardening through Aging, Disability and Illness6/17/202010am11am
Gardening throughout the ages has been a source of pride, enjoyment, and purposeful activity. Most gardeners want to continue to garden as long as they possibly can. Disability, lifestyle changes, age, illness, and infirmity slowly take that purposeful activity from them. Unfortunately, for many individuals, gardening activity declines due to lack of knowledge regarding available adaptive tools, equipment, or technique. This webinar will cover the benefits of gardening, discuss how disability and illness issues impact gardening, discuss assistive technology solutions, resources available, and provide examples of adaptive gardening devices. This webinar will be led by Curt Johnson, MS, CRC, ATP, Assistive Technology Specialist with the Washington Assistive Technology Act Program (WATAP) at the UW Center for Technology and Disability Studies.
