About Cooperative Extension

UGA Cooperative Extension was founded in 1914 to take research-based agricultural information to the people of Georgia. County agents and specialists throughout the state share information on issues like water quality, profitability in agribusiness, family wellness and life skills.

County agents provide soil and water test supplies and instruction, advice on safe pesticide use, provide publications and computer programs and teach consumers skills to improve Georgians quality of life. They are the local experts in food safety, proper eating habits, child safety and parenting.

UGA Cooperative Extension coordinates 4-H, Georgia’s largest youth program. Each year, almost 200,000 young Georgians participate in community projects, summer camps and conferences on today’s issues while having fun and learning to work together. The leadership skills and responsible values they learn in 4-H last a lifetime.

Georgians get their money’s worth from UGA Extension. Every dollar invested in Cooperative Extension saves taxpayers’ dollars in the long run and returns $3 for every $1 invested in Georgia counties.
