You can hear stories from agricultural workers and get information on tools and resources.

“We see that a lot of folks who work in those outdoor businesses. A lot of farmers, fishermen, folks in the woods, they suffer injuries or they work around different physical or mental challenges and those don’t go away just because we can’t gather together," Caragh Fitzgerald, University of Maine Cooperative Extension said. She added, "We want to make sure that people still have a way to access that information and learn about what we do.”

All you need to do is log on to Twitter or Facebook to see the event.
