About Us

The University of Georgia Extension has served Fulton County residents since 1914 when fields still covered much of the county. Over the last century, our programs have expanded to include urban gardening, sustainable landscapes, family and consumer sciences and 4-H youth leadership.

The Fulton County Extension, 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 are 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.
