"Solutions for Your Life" is the tagline for the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, and it's a thoroughly apt description of the services they provide. Administered jointly by the University of Florida and Florida A&M University, the Service is dedicated to "developing knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources, and the life sciences and to making that knowledge accessible to sustain and enhance the quality of human life." Just by looking at their homepage, visitors will get a sense of the cornucopia of material they've brought together. Hints on grilling, the current housing situation in the state, tips on looking for a job, and catch and release fishing are but a few of the topics covered by their many experts. Those persons looking for specific information can use the search engine, or they can click on over to the broad thematic categories on the left-hand side of the page, which include "Environment", Lawn & Garden", "Agriculture", and "Sustainable Living". Finally, visitors can click on their FAQ area and also learn about their work throughout the state in the "Success Stories" section.
