For more than 100 years, University of Illinois Extension has aligned new discoveries with practical solutions that allow Illinois families, farmers, businesses and community leaders solve problems, make informed decisions, and adapt to changes and opportunities. Local Extension staff who live where they serve address priority needs that provide all residents opportunities to improve their lives.
On July 1, the Randolph County Extension office will move into the Randolph County Farm Bureau building located at 1403 North Hillcrest Drive in Sparta. The new, smaller office space will be staffed part-time, yet residents will have full access to the Extension office at 203 North Walnut, Suite A, in Pinckneyville, expanding their walk-in service from four days a week to five.
“Though our physical office space is smaller, our programs will continue to be offered at facilities throughout the county, including the Randolph County Farm Bureau,” said Lynn Heins, Extension county director. “Staff with primary responsibility for Randolph County programs will continue to provide the excellent service they always have. We are excited to be in closer proximity to our Farm Bureau partner.”
