Home Lawn & Garden
UMass Extension and the Center for Agriculture, Food and the Environment want to see people get their home lawn and gardening questions addressed and be able to access good information. People often turn to Cooperative Extension in their home state when they have such a question; and this is understandable since most state Extension organizations have had a tradition of answering those kind of questions, and many of the organizations still perform that function today. In Massachusetts, UMass Extension has needed to focus resources very carefully and has only limited abilities to address your questions. However, other organizations in the state do help with gardening questions and do a very good job. In addition, we provide online access to very good information that can help you find an answer to your question yourself, online. If, after attempting to find an answer yourself, you still need to ask us a question, we will do our best to help you by responding to your emailed questions.
