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 of the University of Florida and Florida Agriculture and Mechanic University, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and county governments throughout the nation. All of these groups share in the planning, financing, and operation of extension programs.
In Florida, the Cooperative Extension Service is administered by the University of Florida. Calhoun County Commissioners provide support for local faculty, staff and facilities.
The Calhoun County Cooperative Extension Service provides research-based educational programs in the program areas of agriculture, horticulture, family consumer sciences and 4-H youth development.
Locally based advisory committees assure that programs are designed to meet community needs. Volunteer training is strongly emphasized in our programs to enable us to reach more of the county’s population.
