We look forward to opportunities to share the successes of Purdue Agriculture research, extension, and teaching with some of our state’s lawmakers. As we prepare for these meetings, here are resources available to help us tell the Purdue Agriculture story:

Purdue Extension and Agriculture Research: Indiana’s Educational Partner for Life

Everything we do helps make life better. Nothing is more fundamental about life than food, agriculture, health and nutrition. We believe in the power of education. We teach people to grow crops, raise animals, build communities, and strengthen families in sustainable ways. We work through partnership – from volunteers to funding. We make life better in Indiana and we need your support.

Growing food, Growing Communities

Purdue Extension partners with local communities to not only grow and supply nutritious food, but also grow partnerships, education and ultimately strengthen people.
