WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU: Food. Farm. Families.

OSU Extension provides science-based information and remote and in-person learning opportunities to help Marion County youth and adults answer questions and solve problems, develop life skills and manage resources wisely, and provide information you need to protect you and your family, and grow our local economies. Much of extension's information is locally generated so it has greater relevance to you than other online resources.

Most OSU extension events are still remote and online, but there is a full and robust calendar of events.In September you can learn about hummingbirds, gardening, food preservation, and attend a Small Farm School. See the EVENTS calendar below

Browse OSU Extension Publications. Topics include 4-H, agriculture, business management, community development, education tools, family & home, emergency response, forestry, gardening, health & wellness, languages, natural resources, nutrition & food, outdoor recreation, and more.

Ask Extension provides an answer from OSU extension faculty on a wide range of topics.
