With offices in all 75 counties, our faculty and staff provide educational programs and research-based information to the people of Arkansas. From agricultural programs to family financial management to youth education, we offer educational programs that have immediate and practical applications. The Faulkner County Cooperative Extension Office has partnered with Arkansas Gardencorps to extend our current nutrition and garden education programs at Wooster and Greenbrier and to provide a basis for expansion of our programming into other schools and non-profits in Faulkner County.

Sam Gullion

Samantha is a native born Arkansan. She graduated from the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts in 2008 and went on to gain a BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in photography from Hendrix College in 2012. She has been gardening with her grandparents since a young age, but developed her love of agriculture through her studies of food politics and sustainability at Hendrix. She understands that the food we consume directly affects our health and believes that everyone should have access to healthy, locally grown food. She also believes that the disconnect between what people eat and how it is produced is the cause for many of the issues surrounding food in the twenty-first century. These beliefs led her to a six month volunteer service with Heifer Ranch in Perryville, AR followed by a year volunteering as an Americorps VISTA and another year as an Arkansas Gardencorps Service Member.
