UGA Extension Office


The Glascock County Cooperative Extension Office extends lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education.

We offer services in the following areas:

Extension Publications
  • Vegetable Garden Calendar (C 943) The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall. Every year does not conform to the "average," so you should use your own judgment about advancing or delaying the time for each job, depending on weather conditions.
  • Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.
  • Time Management: 10 Strategies for Better Time Management (C 1042) Learn 10 strategies for better time management, including knowing how to spend your time, setting priorities, using planning tools, getting organized, scheduling, delegating, and avoiding procrastinating, wasting time, and multitasking.

  • Jun 8 Honey Bee Removal Specialist Certification Training To provide the highest level of consumer protection, the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission updated the state regulations to create a state certification category for honey bee control and removal. Before the amendment, the regulations required a household pest control license to remove honey bee colonies from structures. This rule applies to the professional control and removal of an established colony in a structure. Part of the state certification program requires attendance of an approved 8-hour training program. With this notice we are inviting you to the Putnam County Extension Office on June 8, 2023 from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM to be part of this training. For more details and to register for the 8-hour program contact us at 706-485-4151 or email Thanks to the sponsorship of Putnam Farm Bureau there will be no charge for the session at the Putnam County Extension Office, and refreshments will be provided.
