GROWING is a joint publication by Linn and Benton County OSU Extension services, and is published by the Albany Democrat Herald. GROWING is published every other month (January, March, May, July, September, and November). 

Our partnership with the Mid-Valley Media Group has created a wonderful opportunity for Extension to reach more people in both counties. GROWING will be inserted into the Albany Democrat Herald, Lebanon Express, Gazette Times, and Philomath Express. For those who don't subscribe to one of these newspapers, GROWING will also be inserted into This Week, a free publication delivered to most households in the mid-valley.
