Agriculture & Natural Resources
For more than 100 years, UGA Extension has been the trusted source of education, innovation and information for agriculture in Georgia. From the latest crop studies to controlling garden pests, we have the research-based information Georgians need. Here are some of our most commonly requested resources.
Randolph County Extension/4-H wrote a grant through Golden Triangle RC&D that allowed for the implemenation of a working garden to be used as a teaching tool.
