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.
