Thanks to the hustle of a Greene County Extension Council member and the interest of some area businesses, copies of the “Friends of Greene County Extension” campaign brochure can now be found all over Greene County.

Mary Sue Joplin is the council member that has invested her time in placing and servicing local businesses in the county.

The businesses in Greene County have agreed to display and pass out the Friends of Greene County Extension brochures: Schaffitzel's Greenhouse, Inc., Wickman's Garden Village, Carson's Nurseries, Nixa Hardware and Seed Co., Orscheln Farm and Home in Republic, Richart's Stone and Garden, SoMoFarm and Ranch Supply, Race Brothers Farm and Home Supply, Steinert's Greenhouse, John Deere Landscapes Branch 182, Native and Organic Garden Center, Hummert Seed and Supply, Mama Jean's South, Chesterfield Family Center in Springfield, O'Quinn's Orchid & Nursery in Springfield and Lily's GardenCorner in Springfield.
“Please say ‘thanks’ to the owner or manager of our new supporters when you are in any of them making a purchase,” said George Deatz, vice-president of the Greene County Extension Council. “If you know of any businesses that would be willing to place a dozen or so of our tri-fold brochures for their customers just let us know, we have a good supply at the office.”

Since 1914, Greene County residents have sought help from Extension in areas related to agriculture, gardening, 4-H youth, nutrition, families, business and community development. Members of “Friends of Greene County Extension” contribute financially to make it possible for Extension to continue having a positive impact on the quality of life in Greene County.
