Celebrating 100 Years


The history of UGA Extension is comprised of thousands of stories of Georgians who spent their youth at 4-H events, organized home demonstration clubs or relied on their local county agent for gardening or farming advice. As we celebrate the centennial of Cooperative Extension, we are commemorating these memories and milestones.
