“Where Science and Art meet Life and Practice”

In the previous century, Ruby Green Smith stated Home Economics is where “science and art meet life and practice.”  Home Economics is now known as Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) and the quote still describes the work I do as a community educator in Northwest Ohio.  She also described extension’s home demonstration work as helping women learn to “cooperate with others for the common ends of a more abundant home and community life.”  As Extension celebrates 100 years in 2014, OSU Extension Family and Consumer Sciences celebrates November Live Smart Ohio Month with Better Lives, Stronger Communities.
