OSU Extension Service ~ Josephine County
Oregon State University Extension is the go-to resource for the expertise and knowledge every Oregonian needs to live healthy lives, nurture our great state’s ecosystems, and play a vital role in Oregon’s vibrant communities.
We’re partnering with people in every county and helping them thrive every day — just as we have done for more than 100 years.
Extension provides non-formal education and learning activities to people throughout the country — to farmers and other residents of rural communities as well as to people living in urban areas. It emphasizes taking knowledge gained through research and education and bringing it directly to the people to create positive changes. Extension researchers and educators engage individuals and organizations in asking the challenging questions to discover science-based answers that make a difference.
Today's most pressing issues cross state and world boundaries, requiring strong partnerships, focused investments and diverse perspectives from multiple disciplines. Working together, we create a better world for today and tomorrow by:
• Keeping our food safe and affordable
• Preparing today's youth to thrive in a complex world
• Ensuring our communities are economically strong
• Improving our environment
• Helping families make better decisions
