Making a difference in your life

CourthouseExtension programs present useful information related to agriculture, family & consumer sciences, youth development, horticulture, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and others.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
Extension staff is available and welcome your questions and participation in educational programs. We are so much more than just a Web site.
Visit our offices for the person-to-person help you need.

Extension Friends,

In alignment with K-State Research and Extension recommendations, local and district programs, meetings, events, and activities regardless of group size cannot meet face-to-face between now and May 16, 2020. This includes but is not limited to 4-H club meetings, council meetings, and committee correspondence. This also includes project-based learning, shows, events, and activities directed toward 4-H youth development and other extension audiences.

 Our team is committed to help you determine how to effectively conduct business through technology-based platforms or to reschedule programs to future dates. Please do not hesitate to contact our team if you have questions.

 We appreciate your help with protecting the health, wellness and safety of our communities and families. I will provide updates as recommendations change. Please stay informed at the Hodgeman County Extension website at www.hodgeman.k-state.edu .
