University of Minnesota Extension

The Stearns County Extension Office located in St. Cloud, will be on the move for the week of the 2013 Stearns County Fair.

The office will temporarily be relocating to the Stearns County Fairgrounds in Sauk Centre from Tuesday, July 30 through Sunday, Aug. 4. Normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday will return on Monday, Aug. 5 in the St. Cloud Office located in the Midtown Square Office Building at 3400 1st St North, Suite 103.

The Stearns County Extension Office helps people access research-based knowledge from the University of Minnesota in areas such as agriculture, horticulture, youth development/4-H, community nutrition and food safety.

The local office also offers unique services such as soil testing for your garden, lawn and field; or the testing of pressure canner gauges in preparation for the canning season.

Information can be accessed through one-on-one contact with an Extension educator as well as through the extensive online resources available at www.extension.umn.edu.
