What is UGA Extension?

UGA Extension extends lifelong learning to the people of Georgia through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families.

UGA Extension is a county, state and federal funded organization supported by specialists in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.


What is Agriculture?

In Georgia agents work side-by-side with farmers to help grow Georgia's largest industry and economic engine. By improving growing systems, crop quality and marketing strategies, we help increase the sustainability and profitability of farms, orchards, and nurseries.

In Georgia, agriculture isn't just a way to make a living. It's a way of life, too. UGA Extension helps preserve that way of life with information for producers and consumers of Georgia's agricultural products.

What is FACS?

UGA Extension provides resources for parents, other family and household members, caregivers, and other individuals promoting the positive development and safety of school-age and adolescent youth, consumer economic issues and financial planning, and healthy home environments.

Food & Health: We offer information and demonstrations in safe food handling procedures for consumers and businesses, food preservation and canning, and how to select and prepare nutritious foods. We also offer Walk Georgia, a statewide physical activity program that encourages participants to make positive lifestyle changes.

Family & Finances: From buying a house to planning for retirement, we are here to provide families, parents and guardians the tools needed to make informed life decisions and create healthy home environments.
