Extension Services are great!

Extension services are very responsive to home gardeners and do their jobs very professionally.

A great place to get informaiton. I call them all the time with gardening questions.

Lupita Rincones was great with our students in the Socorro schools! ❤

Love ours in Santa Fe.

Hey there's Nancy Flores Barron!!!! One of my favorite Extension people!!!!

U sigh up?😁👍

Do they teach canning again? It needs to be brought back. Too many people are learning from places that aren’t practicing safe canning methods

I had a lovely fruit tree that was developing a knot. In other states I have found the extension service to be very knowledgeable and helpful. Here three people looked at my photos, read the details and stuttered without a clue. Finally one of them said "we can send it to N M State, maybe they know" Several weeks later they had an answer .... "don't know". Needless to say I don't seek answers from them...🙄🙄🙄🙄

A great program
