The University of Georgia Extension has continually served Fulton County residents since 1914 when fields still covered much of the County. Our programs have expanded over the last century 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 assistance to citizens of the County. That assistance is provided to citizens by telephone consultation, site visits, newsletters, news articles, radio, and collaboration with other community agencies. In addition, publications and lab services are delivery methods for education and information to citizens.
