About ISU Extension and Outreach: Greene County

The Greene County Extension Council, county staff and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our citizens. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Greene County.

Our 2011 Points of Pride tells how we act on that commitment.

Greene County programs are fulfilling that commitment:

We can anticipate trends, build relationships, and catalyze opportunities because we are part of the ongoing life of our communities, committed to healthy people, healthy environments, and healthy economies.
