March 20, 2020
UC Cooperative Extension is currently closed to the public, but we are still working and here to help!
Our Community Education Specialists and Advisors are working remotely and are available via email, mobile phone, zoom and other virtual communications technologies. County staff are in the office during regular business hours and are available via phone and email.
Please call the office if you need access to educational materials or curriculum and staff will bring the items to you.
Being mindful of official guidance concerning social distancing, all UC ANR functions, events, activities, meetings, etc. will also either be postponed, cancelled or moved to Zoom video conferencing. This directive also includes all volunteer-led youth or adult programming, meetings, or gatherings.
During this telecommute status, I want to emphasize that we are still working and available to assist our partners and stakeholders across the state. Critical research projects are being maintained and program delivery is taking place online. There is no impact to your ability to connect with us by email, phone or Zoom video conferencing. Please visit our website (http://ceglenn.ucanr.edu/about/contact/) for contact information and use email or mobile phone as your primary method of communication. We will work to find solutions to support our stakeholders throughout any possible scenario that the virus may bring. Specific information about our programs will be communicated via email.

2018 National Youth Summit on Agri-Science “opened eyes” of CA teens to how agricultural science applies to their daily lives
Youth today are confused about where their food comes from. Children have been quoted as saying cheese comes from plants and pasta from animals (Newsweek, 2017). This confusion is no surprise, as only two percent of Americans live on farms today, disconnected with food and agricultural production. Further, most of the youth today are not aware of the science of food, agriculture, and production, or the need for young people to consider careers in these fields. Creative minds are needed so that we can address the looming worldwide food shortages in the future.
