"Educating with Extension"

    The UF/IFAS/Monroe County Extension Office has been publishing a monthly newsletter since August 2002.  The newsletter initially began as a monthly report distributed to the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners starting in April 2001.  For the first seven months of 2002, the monthly report was transformed into a two-page update information sheet until the August edition, Volume 1, Issue 8, when it became a newsletter titled, "Extension Happenings" and then "Educating through Extension."  The newsletter was re-titled, "Educating with Extension" for the November 2002 edition, which has been the title ever since, although there have been many format changes along the way.
    Newsletters produced over the past two years are available below.  For copies of archived newsletters, please e-mail or call the newsletter editor at 305-292-4501.
