Extension Express is "GROWING"

Beginning January 2016, OSU Extension in Linn and Benton Counties will publish a joint bimonthly newsletter called GROWING.  Our partnership with the Mid-Valley Media Group has created a wonderful opportunity for Extension to reach more people in both counties.  Every other month, GROWING will be inserted into the Gazette Times, Philomath Express, Democrat Herald and Lebanon Express.  GROWING will replace the Extension Express for Benton County.  In an effort to reduce costs residents who currently subscribe to these papers will not receive GROWING through the mail.

A full color version of GROWING will also be available on the Linn and Benton County Extension websites.

For the past 100 years OSU Extension has been delivering education to every community in Oregon, helping Oregonians get good at life. Connect with OSU Extension on Facebook and Twitter.
