Agriculture & Horticulture

Agriculture & Horticulture Educator.

Ashland County’s office does not currently have an Agriculture or Horticulture Educator. With the support of state services and programming, your local Extension Office is able to connect Farmers and community members with Educators across the state to answer questions.

The Agriculture & Horticulture Educator helps to: connect local producers with one another and opportunities for education, economic development, and events, coordinates and manages the Master Gardener program, create curriculum and develop education resources, and provided education on local climate change issues to both Extension colleagues and program participants for climate change working groups.


If it happens on a farm or in a field, the Extension Ashland County works with you to achieve better results. Our innovative dairy management programs range from genetics to farm and business management. Extension researchers work hand-in-hand with row crop, forage and fresh produce growers to provide best practices for every aspect of the growing phase. We also advise communities on using sustainable practices to create inviting spaces free from invasive species. Our work supports people, communities and businesses.
