Extension on the Road

Sedo School Garden

UMaine Extension provides free research-based information to farmers and gardeners
through our Piscataquis County Office in Dover-Foxcroft and this year, staff will be traveling to Greenville, Milo, and Guilford to help answer questions on 4-H Youth
programing, gardening, farming, value-added products, etc.

Black Knot in Plum branchExtension on the Road is a great opportunity for you to bring a diseased plant or tree branch for diagnosis … or a bug for identification … a soil test to transport to lab … etc.… and determine options available. We’ll do our best to answer your question immediately. However, sometimes we need to take more time to research your issue or to consult with UMaine Extension Insect and Disease Diagnosticians, or other UMaine
Extension experts. We may also recommend another agency or organization for you to contact. Our goal is for you to have the best answer possible.

Are you thinking about farming or are looking for information to help with your crop, livestock, or value-added product, plan to stop in and pick up some fact sheets, and information on farming and marketing farm products?

Thinking about getting your kids into a 4-H project or maybe you are thinking about
joining 4-H as a volunteer, we will have information to help let you know about all the
opportunities that are available for youth and adults in the 4-H program.
Stop by and say hello! Share your gardening questions and successes, pick up some
factsheets on raising livestock, pick up 4-H Youth program information and let us know
how we can help.

Piscataquis County horticulture, farm, and 4-H Youth staff are going to Milo, Guilford,
and Greenville throughout the summer for the Extension on the Road.
