County Extension Offices
The MSU Extension Service offers science-based information, hands-on help, educational workshops, and problem-solving experts to all Mississippians, and these resources are no farther away than the county office. Local agents and staff receive training in a wide range of subject matter and are ready to share their enthusiasm about agriculture, natural resources, community development, family and consumer sciences, and 4-H.
Whether you’re interested in specific programs and organizations such as Master Gardeners, Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers, Master Clothing Volunteers, Master Naturalists, Master Health Volunteers, or just need answers to your pressing questions, call your county Extension office. If they don’t know the answer, they’ll find someone who does!
