Stretching for Farmers & Gardeners

You’ve probably seen athletes stretching before a game. They do that to avoid injuries. Farmers and gardeners can injure themselves if their body is not quite ready for physical work. Here is a handy fact sheet from Arkansas AgrAbility (PDF) that shows stretching techniques for before, during and after the work day to avoid strains and injuries. For a hard copy of the one-page stretching exercises, please call Maine AgrAbility at 207.944.1533.  (University of Maine Cooperative Extension Farm Scoop December 2011)
