Solutions for North Carolina

Solutions for North Carolina is the annual impact report of Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T. It describes the ways Extension provides North Carolinians with information and education that leads to better farming techniques and more successful small-scale farmers, healthier and happier families, young people equipped to lead and succeed, and communities with the skills needed to make positive change.

With staff in half of our state’s 100 counties and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Extension makes 500,000 contacts each year. Outreach includes one-on-one consultations, hands-on workshops, field days, training programs, on-site technical assistance for farmers, and increasingly, online programs. Regardless of the format, Extension programs provide people in underserved, limited-income and minority communities with the tools they need to create a better quality of life.
