The Farm and Home/Cooperative Extension Service offers a free advisory service available throughout the U.S. and links citizens to academic experts and researchers for advice and information. Extension Service staff will research and answer questions to provide information on gardening, landscaping, crafts, energy, home furnishings, house plants, money management, shopping and more. The Extension Service provides the latest research results to farmers, fishermen, and foresters. In addition, it administers community programs such as 4-H and distributes many "how-to" publications free.
