Who We Are

The Cooperative Extension Service is nationwide and was established by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914. It is a partnership between state land grant universities, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the county governments throughout the nation. All of these groups share in the planning, financing, and operation of extension programs.

In Union County we do this by conducting educational programs. Education content and emphasis is based on recommendations of the Agriculture and Family, (4-H) Youth, and Community Sciences Program Advisory Committees. Individuals representing Union County residents serve on these working committees to guide, review, and account for Extension Staff administered by the University of Florida.
