UC Berkeley opened its first research farm in 1907 and quickly spearheaded partnerships with county governments across the state. The network has grown to include 57 county offices and 9 research and extension centers. Most county offices offer services that go beyond helping to increase the adoption of agricultural practices. Often, they offer a combination of research support, technical assistance, 4-H youth development programming, and nutrition services to their communities.
We hope the map will complement current and future efforts to trace the impact that UC Cooperative Extension Services has on agriculture, nutrition, and youth development in California.
