What is Extension?
UGA Cooperative Extension is a collaboration between Georgia county governments, the USDA, and the University of Georgia's Colleges of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences and Family & Consumer Sciences. The mission of UGA Cooperative Extension is to extend lifelong learning to the people of Georgia through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families. Backed up by UGA Specialists and a network of resources, Extension Agents have been on the job in Georgia since 1914.
