What We Do

Cooperative Extension extends commitment to communities better than any other agency in this state and in this nation. In times of natural disaster, we care and respond. Cooperative Extension provides leadership training for children and adults. Our educational programs ensure a healthy, safe and abundant food supply. We also help people manage their relationships with food and we help them manage their money, too. We protect the environment and natural resources. We promote economic development and community development.
