Discover Extension's stories

Minnesotans have turned to Extension since 1909 for practical, research-based information to help improve their lives. As a result, Minnesota communities are stronger and more vibrant, today's youth are prepared to be tomorrow's leaders, Minnesota farms are more profitable, the food we eat is safer, and the quality of Minnesota's lakes and rivers is improved.

The citizens of Minnesota helped shape Extension's rich history. We invite you to discover their stories. Extension is committed to building upon this great legacy—for the next 100 years and beyond.
