Extension

UF/IFAS Extension provides Floridians with life-long learning programs in cooperation with county government, the United States Department of Agriculture and Florida A&M University.  The wide breadth of educational programming offered in each county responds to the local needs of residents, schools, regulatory agencies, community organizations and industry.

Programs include sustainable agriculture, teaching environmental stewardship, understanding food nutrition and safety, consumer and parenting skills and providing leadership for youth development with programs like 4-H.

By partnering with local government, advisory committees, concerned citizens, commodity groups and the youth of Florida, UF/IFAS Extension creates an important link between the public and research conducted on campus and at 13 research and education centers.
