UGA Extension in Coweta County. How may we help you?

Many people think that the county agent only works with farmers, but we do far more than that. We have three program areas:

  • Agriculture & Natural Resources
  • Family & Consumer Sciences
  • 4-H Youth Development.

Through these programs, we bring research-based education you can trust from the University of Georgia to your doorstep.

Agriculture & Natural Resources

The Agriculture & Natural Resources (ANR) program assists homeowners, farmers and land owners by providing diagnostic services and educational seminars and workshops.

Diagnostic Services 

  • Soil Testing                                    
  • Water Testing to include a Private Well Home Loan Package and a Private Well Chemical Test Package
  • Forage Testing
  • Insect Identification
  • Plant Disease Diagnostics

Educational Programs

  • Backyard Association Meetings
  • Journeyman Program
  • Well Water Protection Seminar

4-H Youth Development

The core mission of the 4-H program is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished through:

  • Hands-on Learning Experiences
  • School Clubs
  • Project Achievement
  • Competitive Teams
  • Special Interest Clubs

Family & Consumer Sciences

The Family & Consumer Sciences (FACS) program is what some of you may remember as Home Economics. It has expanded into a program that today deals with all aspects of the economics and management of the home and community.

  • Nutrition
  • Food Preparation
  • Parenting
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Family Economics
  • Human Development, and more

Be on the lookout for the following programs coming in 2016: Master Equine Course, Homeowner Well Water Maintenance, Agribusiness Management, 4-H Adventure Day Camp, and more.  For regular information on Extension programs, bookmark www.ugaextension.org/coweta or contact the UGA Extension office in Coweta County at 770.254.2620.
