Extension Service

This department, under the direction of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, distributes updated agricultural research material to local agricultural producers, farmers, and homeowners. This department has three program areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources, Family & Consumer Sciences, and the 4-H Youth Development. The Agriculture & Natural Resources program provides soil, water, and forage testing, insect identification, plant disease diagnostics, and educational workshops on lawns, pastures, vegetables, sustainable agriculture, and livestock. The Family & Consumer Sciences program deals with all aspects of the economics and management of the home and community including nutrition, food preparation, parenting, early childhood education, and family economics. The 4-H Youth Development program assists 4-12 graders in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.
