Talbot County

Welcome to University of Maryland Extension (UME) Talbot County

We are part of a statewide off-campus education system within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources of The University of Maryland College Park. UME has field offices in all twenty-three Maryland counties and Baltimore City. 

We provide research-based educational programs and problem-solving assistance in the areas of agriculture, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, youth development, home and commercial gardening/horticulture, and agricultural nutrient management. This is accomplished through consultations, fact sheets, 4-H clubs and educational programs, workshops, classes, and newsletters.
