Momentum Magazine Summer 2023


Summer is a wonderful time in AGNR. Our Extension faculty and staff accelerate their efforts to assist Maryland citizens with crop production, home horticulture, woodland and Chesapeake Bay preservation, 4-H activity, and much more. County fairs are in full swing, and the culminating state fair is just a few days away. I hope you are enjoying what summer brings your way, and we look forward to seeing you out in the community. -Dean Craig Beyrouty
