SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Each month the Greene County Extension office produces a newsletter known as the “Reaching Out Report.” The publication provides impact information from University of Missouri Extension specialists doing work in Greene County and details on upcoming Extension programs.

This month’s 20-page issue includes a story about predicting weather with persimmon seeds, several examples of agriculture programming in the county, a story about the growing Master Naturalists program, photos and stories from the recent farm tours with Hmongs and details about the 2014 fundraising campaign.

The October newsletter from Greene County Extension can be accessed on the Extension website or directly at . Printed copies of the newsletter are available at the Greene County Extension office inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo.

“We are always looking for a sponsor that would help us mail out or deliver a large number of these newsletters to citizens in the community,” said David Burton, county program director for Greene County Extension. “We don’t have the funds to mail this information out but I believe getting it in the hands of more county residents would help residents understand what Extension has to offer and the importance of our program.”

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. To learn more go online to or call the Greene County Extension Center at (417) 881-8909.
