Farming is a demanding job. It requires long hours of work regardless of the weather. Farmers and farm workers frequently repeat the same tasks throughout the season such as pruning, lifting heavy objects, planting, and harvesting. These jobs are often done in awkward, unnatural positions, or in extreme weather and can wear down the body, causing injury and/or discomfort. This workshop She will teach participants simple exercises to perform before and after work to help reduce body strain from repetitive tasks.
