A Note from the Director Print

Stacy Strickland, Ph.D. Welcome to the Hernando County Extension Website. The Cooperative Extension Service is a partnership between the United States Department of Agriculture, University of Florida Institute Of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners. The extension service is divided into four programmatic efforts: agriculture, lawn and garden, 4-H youth development, and family and consumer sciences.
