We 'R' Here When You Need Us.

Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Somerset County is open to the public, and providing virtual and in-person programming. Masks are optional and social distancing is encouraged. For additional information contact our office.

Rutgers Cooperative Extension is focused on building strong connections within our community that help empower our youth, foster healthy families, and grow rich environments for our agriculture and natural resources. We aim to improve the quality of life for all residents by addressing emerging issues with modern solutions related to agriculture, food, natural resources, environment, public health, and youth development. All of which is accomplished through the hard work of faculty, staff, and volunteers from 4‑H Youth Development, Family & Community Health Sciences, and Agriculture and Natural Resources.
