Cooperative Extension plays a unique role in both rural and urban Pima County. We provide practical information and education to help people make their lives better. Extension educational programs promote environmental stewardship, family health and well-being, youth development and agriculture.
The Garden Kitchen is a seed-to-table health education program that demonstrates how to grow, buy, store, and cook nutritious food. The kitchen, which opened in the fall of 2012, was created as a partnership among the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, UA Pima County Cooperative Extension, the City of South Tucson, and Pima County.
