Who is UC Cooperative Extension Glenn County?


The University of California's 64 Cooperative Extension (UCCE) offices are local problem-solving centers. More than 400 campus-based specialists and county-based farm, home, and youth advisors work as teams to bring the University's research-based information to Californians. UCCE is a full partnership of federal, state, county, and private resources linked in applied research and educational outreach. UCCE tailors its programs to meet local needs. UCCE's many teaching tools include meetings, conferences, workshops, demonstrations, field days, video programs, newsletters and manuals. Thousands of volunteers extend UCCE's outreach, assisting with the California 4-H Youth Development Program and Master Gardener Program.

The University of California Extension was first introduced to Glenn County in 1915.  However, the Agricultural Extension and Home Economics office was voted out of the county in 1927, only to be reinstated by voters in a November 1948 General Election. UCCE Glenn County provides programs tailored to meet the needs of county residents.  Extension services include exceptional 4-H and Master Gardener programs, as well as expert advice for farmers and growers.

Seed to Table Education Exposes Children to Fresh Produce

 Seed to Table Education Exposes Children to Fresh Produce
Despite California’s agricultural bounty, many Contra Costa County children lack knowledge of where their food comes from; they have never been to a farm, nor have they eaten freshly harvested produce. Many are from low-income families and do not have access to healthy foods at home. Research shows that a diet low in produce is associated with poor health outcomes, including obesity and impaired school performance. Childhood obesity rates in Contra Costa County range from 36% to 44%.
