Cedar County MU Extension Council Election
Are we looking for you? The county Extension Council election will be held in January 2014. We are looking for citizens of Cedar County to run on the ballot to serve on the council for a 2 year term. The council members are the front door to MU Extension because they have the ability to put people in touch with the vast variety and scope of programs available through MU Extension. Members campaign for goals, aspirations, and the concerns of people in Cedar County. Council members are involved in securing and administering the county share of funding for MU Extension programing in collaboration with Cedar County Commissioners. Council members also work to recruit members to the council, attend council meetings which educate them on programming and consult with leaders when assigning faculty to their county.
For what you give to the MU Extension Council your reward is making a positive difference in the lives of Cedar County residents as well as developing friendships with knowledgeable leaders in Cedar County. As Cedar County Program Director, I am extending an invitation to people interested in joining the Cedar County MU Extension Council.
If you are interested in being nominated as a candidate or have questions about being a council member contact the Cedar County MU Extension Center at 417 – 276 – 3313 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest in serving.
Additional information can be found in our Invitation to Participate (PDF) brochure.

Vegetable Gardening Questions
As the peek gardening season comes near, here at Extension we get many questions about gardening. This guide is a section from the Missouri Master Gardener handbook on vegetable gardening. It provides information from plant and site selection, irrigation and common problems. There are many other publications available through our website on gardening and other topics as well. Just click the link at the top of the page titled Publications.
Soil tests save time and money. Whether you have acres of pasture or have a vegetable patch in the backyard, a soil test will provide you with an analysis of nutrients and a set of recommendations for improvements. Call or visit the Cedar County Extension office for details. Don't guess... Soil test!
