The Trimble County Cooperative Extension office is now on Facebook. You can arrive at our Facebook page one of several ways.  We have a link on our county extension website at http://ces.ca.uky.edu/trimble/. Just click on the facebook link. You can also login to Facebook and search for Trimble County Cooperative Extension Service. Look for news of upcoming meetings this spring. Later in April I will begin a series of weekly gardening questions for visitors to the page. The first person to answer the question correctly will receive a free packet of garden seeds. So check us out! We look forward to hearing from you.
