Advice from UGA Extension Experts

As we all work together to get through this challenging time, UGA Extension specialists are producing weekly webinars on timely topics. During the week of March 30, we discussed food safety and hygiene strategies.  And the week of March 6 we talked about the new challenges of homeschooling and having youth at home all the time. Next week, on April 9 will focus on stress and mental well-being.

Here's a playlist of all current videos.
