Making a Difference in Your Life

About Extension Programs

Extension programs present research-based information related to agriculture, family and consumer sciences, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more.  We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and other places.

Our Partners

Shawnee County Extension is a unique partnership among Shawnee County, Kansas State University and the United States Department of Agriculture.

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.

Stop by, give us a call or send us an e-mail. We're here to help you!
