#CCHACares: Hamilton County Purdue Extension

POST DATE: 5.8.20

As life edges towards normalcy, CCHA is committed to our continued effort to recognize and highlight organizations making an impact in our neighborhoods and communities through another #CCHACares feature.

Founded May 6, 1869, the Hamilton County Purdue Extension (Purdue Extension) provides educational opportunities throughout Hamilton County — their educators, specialists, and volunteers live and work in all our communities. Executive Director Susan Peterson and her team provide practical solutions to real issues and needs providing the link between Land Grant research and our citizens.

The Purdue Extension’s goal -- one CCHA is proud to stand behind -- is to transform lives and livelihoods through research-based education. If this goal is one you wish to support, consider helping build vibrant communities, strong families, and profitable businesses on its Main Streets and its farm gates.

One nation's largest providers of scientific research-based information and education, the Purdue Extension is a network of colleges, universities, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, serving communities and counties across America.

Their team has gone so far as to curate a list of COVID-19 related resources as they relate to agriculture (a guide for local producers to navigate the COVID-19 outbreak), community (resources for local governments), environment, family (resources for those living with diabetes), food, gardening, youth and more.

CCHA is excited to watch Purdue Extension continue to move forward in beneficial, impactful ways and appreciate their amazing contribution to the communities they serve.
