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 issue includes a story about the impact of nutrition education in the county, examples of 4-H and Master Gardener programs, reports from three Extension specialists, an article about senior housing and details about the 2014 fundraising campaign.

The 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. “Getting this newsletter 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 about programs go online to or call the Greene County Extension Center at (417) 881-8909.
