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. 
 

Agriculture & Natural Resources: Our goal in Rockdale County is to assist and educate local farmers, businesses, homeowners, and gardeners with latest agriculture and horticulture information regarding soil and water testing, plant identification and diseases, insect identification and control, and private/commercial pesticide licensing.  We also offer consultations with a UGA Agriculture Agent, and information about the Master Gardener Extension Volunteer  Program.

 

4-H Youth Development: Rockdale County's future leaders learn life skills through hands-on learning experiences. 4-H is considered one of the world's largest youth clubs offering today's youth from Kindergarten-12th grade a variety of clubs, programs, summer camp and activities.

 

Family & Consumer Sciences: Provides education in the community on topics including: healthy eating and cooking, as well as quarterly ServSafe Managers Training Certifications, and quarterly Child Care Provider credit hours. The Family and Consumer Science Agent also offers counseling and workshops  in a variety of areas. These include: Health education, diabetic meal planning, and food safety.
