Extension - Serving the Entire Community

Jeff Davis County Extension offers a wealth of information and services for residents of our county.  Agents and trained support staff provide educational programs as well as a number of services.  Our Agriculture and Natural Resources agent offers crop, landscape and gardening information to residents, and other classes as well as water and soil testing and access to UGA informative publications.  Our 4-H agent creates and organizes youth educational programs including competitive events which will assist young people to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills through experiential learning.  Although we do not have a FACS agent housed in our county, the program offers and designs educational programs for the community needs, provides information you can trust on money , home , health, food and family and oversees the EFNEP program which helps families on a budget learn to eat healthy.

Extension Publications
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water (C 1016) Homeowners sometimes experience unpleasant odors in their household water. In many cases, the exact cause of the odor is difficult to determine by water testing; however, this publication provides a few general recommendations for treating some common causes of household water odors.
