Agriculture & Natural Resources
How can we assist with your Agriculture and Natural Resource needs?
Our goal is to assist and educate hobby farmers, businesses, homeowners, gardeners and Master Gardener Extension Volunteers with information about plant identification, plant diseases, insect identification, pest control, and soil and water testing. We offer Lunch & Learn classes, soil and water lab analysis, and consultations with a UGA Agriculture agent. Open each of the pages listed to the left to learn more about our services.

Teachers, how about a garden for your school?
Extension offers teachers excellent opportunities to start a school garden. We have experts to answer questions such as: Where will the funding come from? How big should it be? Who will tend the garden? How much time will it take to get results from the garden? For information about our school garden program, contact Kim Fritz at 678.377.4023 or email email@example.com.
