Registration is open for the 2017 season of the University of Kentucky’s Community Supported Agriculture Project. All UK faculty, staff and students are eligible to enroll in the program, which provides a weekly share of fresh vegetables from May through October from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-certified organic unit of the Horticulture Research Farm in Lexington.

Jimmy Henning will step down as associate dean for extension and director of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service on Feb. 15 to return to the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment’s faculty as an extension forage specialist. Henning has led the extension service since 2007.

“I have wanted to return to the field for some time,” Henning said. “With the renewed emphasis on forage programs as part of the Grain and Forage Center of Excellence and the continued need for the same in Eastern Kentucky, the timing just seems right.”
