Why Extension

UConn Extension is on a collaborative journey. We work together with families, students, communities, businesses, farmers, and statewide partners. We educate. We bring together diverse groups to help solve problems. Join us.

The partnership with UConn Extension has made the tribe stronger. It's refocused our attention towards farming and healthier eating ... We've been able to work with them to ensure that some of our traditional protocols and farming techniques have been cornerstone to this project."
