Gardening with Limitations Webinar Series

Everyone Can Garden!  A five-part vegetable gardening webinar series for people with physical and other limitations.

Do you have a physical limitation such as mobility issues, chronic pain, arthritis, and skin sensitivities that constrains outdoor activity? Do you want to learn about how you can still enjoy gardening despite these challenges? OSU Extension and the CFAES Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invites you to the 2021 Gardening with Physical Limitations Webinar Series Everyone Can Garden! Participants are welcome to attend one or more session between March and August. We will address the basics of planning and planting a vegetable garden, learn about basic maintenance, including pest management, canning and preservation basics, and finish with end-of-season clean-up and preparing for next year all while taking into consideration a variety of physical limitations. Each session is designed to be a stand-alone program, so feel free to attend as many or few as you want!
