As we come to the end of our 100th year of serving the citizens of Florida, the University of Florida/IFAS Extension Faculty located in the 16 county offices of the Florida Panhandle thank you for making 2014 another great year!
Extension has come a long way assisting farmers and their families with relevant information since the beginning of the 20th century. Today, 100 years later, UF/IFAS Extension continues to provide science-based information to the citizens of Northwest Florida.
This year our County Extension Faculty provided valuable information and educational programs to 1000’s of individuals, families, businesses, and agricultural producers across the Panhandle. As you know, our educational programming includes topics in Agriculture, Natural Resources, Horticulture, Family and Consumer Sciences and 4-H Youth Development. UF/IFAS has a Solution for you Life!
We are excited about, and dedicated to providing our clients the most recent and science-based information on a wide range of topics such as:
Agricultural production and marketing
Providing youth with exciting opportunities that develop life skills, teamwork, and responsibility
Food preservation and cooking
Helping individuals and families with health and wellness, parenting and managing budgets
Consumer assistance within the home
Wildlife and land management
Coastal and inland fishery management
Home gardening and commercial landscaping
Acquiring Continuing Education Units for a variety of licenses
Though the first 100 years of UF/IFAS Extension have been very productive, we do not plan on sitting back and resting on the accomplishments of the past. We will continue to provide you and your family the best information and education available to provide “Solutions for Your Life!”
Thank you once again for participating in our Extension programs! We look forward to seeing you in 2015, and as always, if you have questions on any topic, or suggestions on how we can help you better, please do not hesitate to contact us.
