Whether it be at home, in the community, or in the fields, our trained faculty and staff offer problem-solving assistance based on the research and output generated at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Here in Maryland, with offices in all counties and Baltimore City, we apply research-based practical education to improve the lives of American families and to enhance agriculture, business, and industry. Our areas of expertise include but are not limited to agricultural production and nutrient management, water quality, natural resources, food safety, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, youth development, volunteer development, urban development, and community engagement.

All of this is made possible through a successful cooperative arrangement with the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) at the University of Maryland, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and our local county governments, who have been longstanding supporters. We are immensely appreciative of our relationships with administration in each county and city, and look forward to continued collaborative efforts to generate a higher standard of living for Maryland state residents.
