Extension on the Road

View from the top of Charleston Hill

We will have soil testing kits, gardening fact sheets, starting a farm, and 4-H Youth information available. 4-H Youth staff will be attending.

UMaine Extension provides free research-based information to farmers, gardeners, naturalSedo School Garden
resource-based businesses, value-added businesses, and 4-H Youth through our Piscataquis
County Office in Dover-Foxcroft. This year, staff will be traveling to Greenville, Milo, and
Guilford to bring you “Extension on the Road” on the first Fridays of the month, April-October.

“Extension on the Road” is a great opportunity for you to share your gardening questions and
successes, pick up some factsheets on raising livestock, find 4-H Youth program information,
and get to know Piscataquis Extension staff. You could bring a diseased plant or tree branch for
diagnosis, a bug or weed for identification, or a soil test to transport to the lab. We will have fact
sheets and program information to help you make decisions about managing and marketing
crops, livestock, and value-added food products. If you are interested in making a difference in
the lives of local young people or your kids or grandkids are looking for ways to channel their
creativity, 4-H has opportunities for youth and adults to get involved.Deer tick, photo by Griffin Dill

UMaine Extension staff have expertise in different areas, and we will do our best to answer your
question immediately. We may need time to research your issue, to consult with UMaine
Extension Insect and Disease Diagnosticians or other UMaine Extension experts to determine
options and solutions available. We may even recommend you contact another agency or
organization. Our goal is for you to have the best information possible.
