Default Gardening on the Internet

Welcome to the Farm & Garden Forum!

This is the place to go if you want to talk about gardening, agriculture, animal husbandry, farming, or homesteading related topics.

As a means of fostering dicussion and exchange of information we are starting a permanent sticky thread of Internet gardening and farming related resources for both the U.S. and the rest of the world. If you have a resource you'd like to add to the list please PM either myself or DoubleD and we'll add it.

Like our gardens this list is going to be steadily growing as new resources are found so check in on it from time to time to see what's new!

.....Alan.

Default American State Cooperative Extension Services

In the United States every state has a Cooperative Extension Service usually working within each state's land grant college and working in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This service is the public face of the agriculture research establishment of each state and the USDA. Through them one can usually find a vast array of information from gardening, food preservation, animal husbandry, farming, home economics and more. Being state based much of the information they present is region specific so if you're looking for particular variety names of fruit or nut trees, vegetables, and so on that are likely to do well for you in your area they are a great place to start.

If you're just starting out yourself then your local cooperative extension service is a good place to begin. Look for the publications area for documents you can print out for your library. Check in as we flesh out this list.
