For more than 100 years, Cornell Cooperative Extension has worked side by side with our neighbors all across New York to grow healthy food and thriving businesses, empower our youth, strengthen families and communities, and make our environment more sustainable for current and future generations.

Today, all of New York is being tested like never before. However, Cornell and CCE’s resolve has never been stronger. Across the state, our people are answering the call.

While we miss the hugs, know that we are still by your side.

Better days are coming, New York.

And together we’ll come through this – stronger than ever.
