Stories of Southern Oregon: The centrality of the Extension Center

Whether you're a farmer tending hundreds of acres or a gardener with one raised bed, you can get help growing plants from your local extension service. Oregon State University is the extension school in Oregon, and part of the mix of entities at the Southern Oregon Research and Extension Center (SOREC) near Medford.

SOREC had to change its practices because of the pandemic, and had its well run dry during the drought last summer.

What's ahead this year? That's the main question in this month's Stories of Southern Oregon, compiled by Maureen Flanagan Battistella.

She returns with Richard Roseberg, SOREC's director.
