Fulton County

Fulton County is part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. According to the 2010 U.S. census, Fulton has the largest population of any Georgia county. The county spans more than 70 miles from the southern end to the northern end. It is located in the Georgia Piedmont near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.


The UGA Extension has served Fulton County residents since 1914, when farm fields covered much of the metro area. Over the last century, programs have expanded to include urban gardening, sustainable landscapes, family and consumer sciences, and youth leadership.

The mission of the Fulton County Cooperative Extension Service is to respond to citizens' needs and interest in agriculture and natural resources, families, 4-H and youth through education and information.

The Fulton County Cooperative Extension Service, backed by the resources of Fulton County and the University of Georgia, provides educational programs, information, and actual assistance to citizens of the County. Education and information is also provided to citizens by telephone consultation, site visits, newsletters, news articles, radio and collaboration with other community agencies. Publications and lab services are other delivery methods for education and information to citizens.

Mission

Our mission is to extend lifelong learning to Georgia citizens using unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth, and families.

The Camp Truitt Dining Hall deck is in the process of being repaired; therefore, we have halted the daily/weekend rentals until the deck has been restored. If you have any questions, please call Cecilia Rower at 404-762-4085.
