The County Extension Service program operates as a partnership between Texas A & M University and the local county government. The county agents who staff the County Extension Service Office are local residents who serve as subject matter experts, educational planners, and adult and student leaders. This service provides information coming from research in the broad categories of agriculture, nutrition and home economics, community development, horticulture, natural resources, and 4-H and youth development. The County Extension Service is the largest provider of informal education for adults in Texas. The County Extension Service is located in Georgetown.
