About Cooperative Extension
The University of California’s sixty-four Cooperative Extension offices are local problem-solving centers. We are the bridge between local issues and the power of UC research. Our county-based staff is part of the community – we live and work in the areas we serve. And UCCE will be celebrating the centennial of Cooperative Extension in California next year.
As part of the agricultural community, we help farmers develop more-efficient growing methods, solve pest management problems, and develop crops and irrigation methods that use less water.
As advocates for healthy communities, we promote healthy diets and exercise for better health, help Californians learn to choose the most nutritious foods, and help shape the citizens of tomorrow through the 4-H Youth Development Program.
Volunteers extend the reach of our work through the Master Gardener Program, the Master Food Preserver Program, and the California 4-H Youth Development Program.
As stewards of the land, we help develop smart water-use strategies and help preserve natural areas, landscapes, and farmland.
We are stewards, problem-solvers, catalysts, collaborators, and educators.
