Calhoun County, Arkansas Agriculture

The Arkansas Timber Producers Association (ATPA) certifies loggers to haul, harvest and deliver timber to mill in Arkansas.  They require loggers to obtain six CE credits per year to maintain their accreditation.  The Calhoun County CES office started offering an annual statewide educational event for CE accreditation to loggers.  The event is offered after working hours in collaboration with the ATPA for logger convenience.  We negotiated a reduced cost of only $5 per person to save loggers money and host it at a central location to save local loggers travel time.

Gardens and Lawns

Calhoun County residents are interested in maintaining their lawns, landscapes and vegetable gardens using environmentally sound practices and environmentally safe products.  Link to information that will help you keep your garden, landscape and lawn green and growing. For more information contact Jaret Rushing,, CEA-Agriculture.

Family & Consumer Sciences

17% of Calhoun County adult population are age 65 and older.  Many adults are faced with health problems related to aging.  Research has shown strength training and proper nutrition will increase the overall health and well being among older individuals. The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service and Calhoun County have participated in the Strong Women program developed by Dr. Miriam E. Nelson of Tufts University.  Also used were the Chef Charles Nutrition curriculum. Twenty-three sessions were taught on strength building, eighteen sessions using dumbbells and ankle weights.  Six lessons were taught from Eat Smart, Live Strong and six lessons from Chef Charles.  Participants stated that 50% gained agility and balance; 73% felt physically stronger and had more energy.  For more information contact Linda Sims,, CEA-Staff Chair.
