The University of Georgia Peach County Cooperative Extension Office extends lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families.  

Peach County faculty and trained support staff provide educational programs as well as a number of Ag testings  services to the citizens of Peach County.   Our Ag Agent provides unbiased, research-based info that helps clients make critical decisions.  Extension recommendations focus on maximizing production and profit, while minimizing environmental impacts.

We have 4-H club meetings monthly that provide 4-H’ers the chance to learn about what 4-H has to offer in upcoming months as well as various educational opportunities. We begin 4th – 8th  grade in-school club meetings in September at each school. We have a County Council Club that is a general 4-H meeting open to all 4-H’ers regardless of which age group, school, etc they are in. Most of our high school, private school and home school 4-H’ers attend this meeting to get updates.  Our County Council Meetings are held September-May, third Thursdays each month at 6:30pm @ the Peach Co. 4-H office. This is a general 4-H introductory meeting that outlines the activities planned for the year.

If there are programs that interest you and need more information about, feel free to contact us! There is no cost to be a 4-H Club member but some of our activities, like summer camp, have a fee for that specific event.
