Webster County is home to 2,800 people, making it the third smallest in Georgia. Agriculture is the top industry in the county, occupied 54,664 acres, and generated over $27 million in total farm gate value in 2014 through diverse row crops, forages, and livestock. The farmers in Webster County utilize cutting-edge technology such as grid soil sampling, sending off more soil samples in the past year than Webster County has population.

Webster County 4-H has a spot reserved for youth 9 – 19 years old. Through programs such as project achievement, in-school programming, and summer camp, Webster County 4-H’ers acquire knowledge, develop life skills, and form attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing citizens.

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.
