A few thoughts to share that guide my Extension work…
Extension outreach efforts have led me to understand that walls can’t be built tall enough or thick enough to separate myself and my views from others and their views! When differences of opinion arise, we must always remember to discuss the difference, but don’t alienate the person. Collaborative efforts, productive conversations and mutual respect can help bridge the gaps of difference in our lives. Extension has many resources available through county educators, regional specialists and state specialists to provide science based information to serve the many needs of clients across the state. Extension strives to continually improve the delivery methods of this information with the goal of conveniently meeting people where, when and how is best for their life. -Josh Kamps
