Greenwood County

Welcome to Greenwood County Research and Extension 

Greenwood County is located in the heart of the Flint Hills, a unique geological formation known for its tall grass prairie.  Greenwood County has the most grassland acres of any county in Kansas.  Greenwood County Extension office is a great resource for finding the information you need.  Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more.  We take programs to schools, gardens, and communities.

Extension is based on the five grand challenges of Kansas: water, health, feeding the world, developing tomorrows leaders, and community vitality.
