UMN Agricultural Extension Resources

Source: Karen Johnson, University of Minnesota Extension

Winter is turning to spring. Many people are beginning to think about the spring activities of planting our fields and gardens. When questions arise, remember to ask your local Extension office for the latest research-based information!

University of Minnesota Extension can truly be a valuable resource by connecting university resources to address community needs and questions. This goal is ultimately achieved by providing timely, unbiased education in many different outlets. Some of these outlets include newspapers, radio, workshops, websites and social media, just to name a few.

Extension’s resources are also available 24-7 at our University of Minnesota Extension website. Simply type into your browser to access unlimited informational resources at your fingertips.  There are a number of different icons across the top of the Extension webpage to help guide you toward the information you may be looking for.  Outside of agriculture and the well-known 4-H youth development program, there are several other areas such as community, environment, family, food and gardening that showcase resources on the Extension website.

If websites are not for you, try reaching out to either the McLeod or Meeker County Extension offices. We are available to answer any type of question on a one-on one basis through calls, emails or by stopping by our office. 

The McLeod County Extension office is located on the fairgrounds at 840 Century Ave SW, Hutchinson or by phone at 320-484-4334. The Meeker County Extension office is located in the Family Services building at 114 Holcombe Ave N, Litchfield or by phone at 320-693-5275. Contact Karen Johnson, Extension Educator for any of your gardening and agriculture assistance needs. Workshop inquiries, horticulture and agriculture questions, and topic suggestions always welcome!
