The Good Earth Gala is the signature event of the Education Foundation for Suffolk County Extension, Inc. to benefit the educational programs and research of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County assists and educates residents, businesses and professionals in a broad spectrum of topics by providing research-based information on parenting, diabetes management, nutrition and wellness, horticulture, environmental protection, marine restoration and sustainable agriculture.
Experts from our four main program areas—Family Health and Wellness, Marine, Agriculture and 4-H Youth Development—reach tens of thousands of adults, children, professionals and businesses each year.
We bring this free and low-cost knowledge directly to people at workshops, children’s camps, libraries and schools. We also work one-on-one with fisherman, farmers and growers to strengthen these industries, bringing tourism and advancing economic development. CCE programs have had a significant impact on communities and industry in Suffolk for nearly a century.
Participants will learn safe, science-based USDA methods for preserving fresh produce. Canning and storing jars of fresh food allows us that fresh-picked taste all year long!
Anyone with a desire to learn more about gardening and an interest in contributing to the community on a voluntary basis is a candidate for the Suffolk County Master Gardener Volunteer Program.
We invite you to join us for the second class in our cooking and nutrition workshop series. This class will feature September produce in two fabulous fall recipes: Wonderful Waldorf Salad and Stuffed Acorn Squash.
A conference for professionals who work with children, youth and families. - Educators from the FHW Program at Cornell Cooperative Extension will present research-based information and practical ideas for taking back childhood.
Come enjoy pumpkin-picking, vendors selling crafts, games, food, wagon rides and so much more!
Help give back by joining us on Labor Day Weekend as we partner with the Peconic Estuary Program for the First Annual Back to the Bays 5k in Southold.
