UGA Extension Office



UGA Extension has been teaching people how to grow food for over 100 years. We also support homeowners with information about lawn and landscape care, water conservation, gardening safety, pollinator protection, backyard chickens, and enjoying the natural world.

Our Mission 

Our mission is to extend lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, and 4-H youth development.

UGA Extension Forsyth County is part of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. We are also an educational resource for the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners and the Forsyth County Board of Education.

UGA Extension offers educational programs, assistance, and materials to all people without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex or handicap status.

Information can be accessed by way of phone calls, e-mail, classes, newsletters, this website, newspaper columns, and community alerts throughout the year. Learn more about UGA Extension.
