We will continue to work and are available for your Agriculture, Family & Consumer Sciences, or 4-H needs.

 

We are still processing soil samples as long as the lab in Athens remains open. Bring your soil samples to the office and call or knock and an Extension Staff member will help you.

 

All local, in-person 4-H activities are cancelled until further notice. District and State events are being evaluated. 4-H Summer Camp is still planned and we are still taking payments by mail. 

 

We will continue to be here and serve Coffee County residents and will update you with more information as it becomes available.
