Attention: COVID-19 NOTICE

UF/IFAS Extension places the highest priority on the safety and health of our community members, staff and volunteers. As part of the phased opening of the office, we allow limited people in the lobby at one time and limited live class sizes to allow social distancing. You may have to wait your turn to enter the lobby for the Plant Clinic if we have someone in the lobby already. Please be patient as we work to limit the spread of Covid-19. We are also still here to serve you by phone or email and you can find information for programs and contact staff members on this web site.

 

We look forward to working with you, and please stay safe!
