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.

Extension's research-based programming helps local citizens improve their lives and our communities through learning partnerships. We are "Investing in You!"
