Cornell Cooperative Extension, Schuyler County (CCESC) is vital to the cultural and economic well-being of our community. With your continued support, CCESC can continue to offer programs that build a stronger Schuyler County and contribute to our shared prosperity.

Our impact is far-reaching and extends to you, your family, and your neighbors - your entire community - in many different ways. Our fundamental goals are to:

  • Conduct agricultural research and educational programs to help farms increase profits, reduce costs and to minimize the impact on the environment, including organic and sustainable practices.
  • Encourage people to “buy local,” which saves money, leads to healthier diets, and lends support to local farms.
  • Show people how to grow their own food, how to prepare it and how to preserve it for later use.
  • Build positive life skills and provide alternatives to risk-taking behavior in youth.
  • Support community initiatives such as Solar Schuyler and the HEART (Healthy Eating and Activity in Rural Towns) club.
  • Educate people about how to save energy and how to reduce their heating and cooling costs.

CCESC asks for your support in 2018. Contributions are a vital part of our budget to ensure quality staff and programming. We have a history of regional collaboration, local impact and community-building. We need your support to deliver on our mission to build strong, vibrant New York communities.

Thank you for your support.
