Agriculture & Resource Management
Our programs focus on commercial agriculture and horticulture, environmental and resource management issues, farm business development and marketing, pesticide safety and training, integrated pest management (IPM), and other related topics.
Our work with commercial clientele and governmental agencies is intended to improve public understanding of the relationship between agriculture and open space and the general and environmental vitality of the county.
Our residential clientele includes individuals and organizations. We provide information and educational resources on a diverse range of topics, including gardening, household and structural pest identification and control, tick identification and Lyme disease, composting, and environmentally sound gardening practices.
