We Still Grow NC

At NC State Extension, we never stopped growing North Carolina, and we never will.

NC State Extension improves lives and grows North Carolina. While the pandemic has presented extraordinary challenges, we never stopped delivering on our promise.

Our experts are connecting with North Carolinians in new and innovative ways. From Murphy to Manteo, in all 100 counties and the Eastern Band of Cherokee, we’re utilizing tools and technology to transport Extension into homes, businesses and communities.

“Extension meets people where they are, wherever they are.”
~ Rich Bonanno, Director, NC State Extension

“We become a trusted source of information because we care about others’ problems and help them find solutions."

~ Travis Birdsell, Director, N.C. Cooperative Extension - Ashe County Center
