By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on December 22, 2022

UF/IFAS Extension offices provide non-biased, research-based information to America’s citizens.  Pasco County Extension is an off-campus branch of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS), serving as a bridge between the research labs of the university and the local community by providing educational materials and programs for adults and youth. Pasco County Government provides support for local faculty, staff and facilities.

Each month, UF/IFAS Pasco Extension office offers classes and events for local citizens, with a homemaking, home care, and agricultural emphasis. Some are free and some require a small fee. All are excellent ways to learn about the subject matter. Participants do not have to be from Pasco County.
