Due to the public health concern caused by COVID-19, the Education Center will be closed to staff members and to the public until further notice.

UNH Extension staff and volunteers answer questions on the phone at 1-877-EXT-GROW (398-4769), via email at, and on Facebook and Instagram. The primary expertise of staff and volunteers who operate this service is home horticulture.

The Education Center at Goffstown is home to UNH Cooperative Extension yard & garden education and outreach programs, Pesticide Safety Education Program, and strategic Master Gardener initiatives. The Education Center is in the same building as the Hillsborough County Extension location, but is a separate and distinct office. Our friendly and helpful staff and volunteers provide residents across the state with trusted information, practical education and high quality services that improve people’s lives, the economy and communities.

Please note: The Education Center at Goffstown is in a secure building. When you enter through the building’s front entrance, you will go through a security check-point. Then you will take a right at the top of the stairs and proceed to the far end of the hallway. The Education Center is on the left.
