Learning for Everyone

UGA Extension's educational programs have statewide significance:

  • In schools through 4-H
  • In cities with efforts such as Master Gardeners and Urban Gardening
  • In rural areas by helping farmers with crop, conservation and financial information
  • In homes by providing food, nutrition, child development and financial literacy information
  • In the wild by working with residents to protect the environment
  • In the food service industry by providing information and training relating to safe food handling and preparation

Through county Extension offices, the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences helps Georgians become healthier, more productive, financially independent and environmentally responsible.
