It has been a joy to write 137 columns over the past 4.5 years for farmers, agronomists, and landowners in southeast Nebraska. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as a local University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator. My last day with Nebraska Extension will be June 21. Many have emailed, called, and texted me wondering what my next endeavor will be. Starting in July, I will be the State Soil Health Specialist with U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service located in Lincoln. I have served as a Water & Cropping Systems Extension Educator for 10 years (5.5 years previously in Fremont) where I have gained valuable experience and built networks that I will carry with me into my next job.

The “Good Life in Early Life” podcast, a product of Nebraska Extension’s Early Childhood program, disseminates the latest insights in Early Care and Education (ECE) tailored for a Nebraska audience. The podcast’s mission is to provide a unique platform, delivering scientific information in an accessible manner while uplifting Nebraskans through relatable success stories in early childhood within the state.

Join us for the next programs in the GRO Big Red Virtual Learning series.
