Members of the Greene County Extension Council will conduct their regular monthly public meeting starting at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24 in the large classroom at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 South Scenic Avenue, Springfield, Mo. The Botanical Center is home to the Greene County Extension Center.

The full agenda for the meeting, as well as minutes from the previous month’s meeting, can be found online at under the “plans and reports” tab.

This month’s meeting includes the first look at a proposed business plan for the Greene County Extension Council. This is the first business plan in the state of Missouri for an elected extension council. Council members will also be taking part in the annual program review and discussing future program ideas.

The county extension council, comprised of both elected and appointed citizens, is a full partner with Missouri's land-grant universities to deliver high-quality education and research-based information that helps people solve real-world problems and take advantage of opportunities.

Council members work with extension specialists to provide county educational programs, manage finances of local extension operations, provide personnel to carry out extension activities, and elect and organize the local extension council
