The Golden Prairie District Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking University knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
Short for the Kansas State University Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, K-State Research and Extension is dedicated to producing a safe, sustainable, competitive food and fiber system and strong, healthy communities, families and youth through integrated research, analysis and education.
K-State Research and Extension expands human capacity by delivering educational programs and technical information that results in improved leadership skills in the areas of communication, group dynamics, conflict resolution, issue analysis, and strategic planning that can enhance the economic viability and quality of life in communities.
