Nineteen years thats how long I have been an Extension agent and it has been a very good career for me!
I thoroughly enjoy visiting with people and helping whenever I can. When I began as an agent, I was amazed by the fact that not everyone knew what the Extension service was. I always heard the phrase Extension is the best kept secret and I thought to myself, Im going to change that! Unfortunately, 19 years later, I still frequently visit with folks who have absolutely no idea of the services the Extension office can provide. So many services in fact, its too numerous to list. But one of those that I want to draw your attention to is our horticulture services.
Anyone that has a lawn or landscape can benefit from the local Extension office. The weeds you try to keep from growing in your lawn, or the tree that has holes in the trunk, or the spots on your tomato leaves are all areas in which the Extension office can help you. We offer you that one-on-one personal service that you cannot get from Google.
