An “Ask an Expert” partnership of the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service (ACES), eXtension, and Bonnie Plants is now operational. A new ACES position, Outreach Programs Administrator, funded by Bonnie Plants was filled earlier this month to handle incoming questions. The Ask an Expert widget is now up and running on the Bonnie Plants home page and on their other pages with how-to-grow content: http://www.bonnieplants.com/
As reported on May 20, fifteen questions have already been received in the last few days (a dozen in the last 24 hours) from nine states.
Both eXtension and ACES are gaining visibility from this unique partnership. Thanks go especially to the eXtension application development team for their cooperation, hard work, and patience in helping to make this project a reality.
