At Sumter County Extension we share your vision for a healthy environment and a prosperous community. There are things that we can do together to make sure Sumter has County has a sustainable future.
Sustainable practices enable Floridians to meet current needs without compromising the next generation's ability to satisfy their needs. By living sustainably, we can preserve our natural heritage and conserve natural resources for the future. The primary concern associated with integrating sustainability practices is whether local residents, over the long term, will understand and take local action to conserve natural resources. Decisions made by homeowners ultimately determine whether a community functions as a “green” community.
