The purpose of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Medina County is to educate residents in agriculture, environmental stewardship, youth and adult life skills, human capital and leadership, and community economic development. We conduct programs with integrity and efficiency to improve the lives of residents.
We are committed to excellence and adhere to strong Extension principles including: ensuring that all residents have access to educational programs; continuing to have education as its primary mission; valuing the principles of citizen and community involvement, learning and volunteerism; emphasizing preventive education; evaluating programs and adapting accordingly; and emphasizing the concept of “helping people to help themselves.”
We educate residents on improving their health, safety, productivity, and well-being; improving environmental stewardship and natural resources; contributing to their economic security and prosperity; making residents responsible, productive, and self-motivated youth and adults.
