The Buckeye Yard and Garden Line Newsletter: A Newsletter with Multiple Impacts.

Proposed by: Dr.Curtis E Young

Presenter: Young, C. E., Ext Educator/assistant Professor, The Ohio State University, Van Wert, OH 45891

The Buckeye Yard and Garden Line (B.Y.G.L. pronounced "Beagle") Newsletter was originally developed as a simple vehicle to communicate horticultural research, developments and information to "Green Industry" personnel in Ohio. The newsletter is a product of a team of Extension Educators from across Ohio with members of the team functioning as editors, authors and photographers. Over the 20 years that BYGL has been in production, it has evolved to take advantage of resources that have developed during that time such as the world wide web. This presentation looks at the history and development of BYGL, how BYGL is evaluated and impacts of the BYGL both internally to the team that develops the newsletter and externally to the clientele who receive the newsletter.
