Local Extension Office Update!

Talbot County Extension Offices are open for appointments. We are currently operating in a hybrid mode to ensure social distancing and minimal contact amongst our faculty, staff, and the public. So please know the person that you need to see may not be available on a given day. Please communicate directly with that person and they can schedule you. Our office doors are locked, so if you have an appointment, please notify the person who your meeting is with upon your arrival and someone will meet you outside. There is a drop box for soil and plant samples. Please include your name and contact information when you leave the sample. The box will be checked daily Monday - Friday. Please know that we are expected to practice social distancing and wear masks, and ask that you do the same during any current visit to the Extension office.
