Welcome!

The Coles-Cumberland-Douglas-Moultrie-Shelby Extension Unit is the University of Illinois' educational outreach to local residents. We offer programming in the following areas: local food systems and small farms, 4-H youth development, family life, and nutrition and wellness. We also offer the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-Ed) and Master Gardener program. Extension's research-based programming helps local citizens improve their lives and our communities through learning partnerships. We are "Investing in You!"
