In an interview with Ryan Jacobsen, Executive Director of the Fresno County Farm Bureau, Dr. Shannon Mueller, University of California Cooperative Extension County Director, shared the role of Extension in the community.
Highlighting the local impact of UC Farm Advisors, Mueller recognizes programming and services they provide as a "bridge between the information that is developed on campus" and the needs of local growers.
Mueller also highlights the importance of Nutrition Education programming in Fresno County, particularly for school children and their families.
"We have really one of the premier nutrition programs in Cooperative Extension, here in Fresno County," she explains, “they conduct trainings in the school. They go out and visit classrooms and talk about good nutrition, physical activity, and health issues.”
