SECTION 1



EXTENSION




Extension provides non-formal education and learning activities to
people throughout the country to farmers and other residents of
rural communities as well as to people living in urban areas.

It emphasizes taking knowledge gained through research and education
and bringing it directly to the people to create positive changes.

WHAT
IS AN
EXTENSION
OFFICE?




Extension Office 411

Extension offices are departments located in local counties and
universities. These offices are run by university employees and
volunteers that are experts in local crops, landscaping, soil,
gardening, pests, and more. Almost every single county in the
United States has an extension office, and the offices are
supported by state universities.

Because there are so many extension offices throughout each state,
extension offices provide highly localized information. They know
about the specific soil, wildlife, crops, and more found in their
county, providing expert advice to local residents.
