Who We Are

Due to the threat presented by COVID-19 to our communities, for the safety and well-being of our staff, residents and program participants, UF/IFAS Extension offices are postponing all events and programs until April 30, 2020. This is in response to the recommendations by the Florida Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute of Health and the University of Florida.

As always, our UF/IFAS Extension offices will keep residents updated through a variety of channels including our websites and social media channels. The staff and faculty are available by calling 321-633-1702 and emailing  We will post updates as we get them.

Stay well (and wash your hands)!
