Benton County Extension Service Faculty, staff, and volunteers deliver research-based information to help youth and adults solve problems, develop life skills, and manage resources wisely.
We coordinate information tours, conferences, short courses, workshops, and demonstrations. We provide brochures and publications with specific research based information on a variety of subjects.
OSU Extension in Linn and Benton Counties publishes 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 is inserted into the Gazette Times, Philomath Express, Democrat Herald and Lebanon Express. 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 is available on the Linn and Benton County Extension websites.
