Extension Districts

Our audience is as large and varied as Florida's population. People often associate UF/IFAS Extension programs with agriculture, and that's a big part of our job. But there's so much more. We help homeowners, homemakers, retirees and children with programming that can help them be healthy, save money, meet challenges and enjoy the benefits of life in the Sunshine State. With offices in all 67 Florida counties, UF/IFAS Extension is never far away.
