The mission of the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Polk County Advisory Council is to promote excellence by sharing the impacts of the Extension program in Polk County and help ensure that Cooperative Extension programming meets local needs.


The next meeting of the Advisory Council is TBD.


  • Terry Lynch – Terry moved to Polk County in 2014 and is constantly learning how to grow things in the south versus the northern climate in his former home in Ohio. He took the Master Gardener course in 2017 and continues to learn. His specialties include intensively managing a relatively small amount (4 acres) of pasture for his two horses and growing and adding to a large conifer garden on a hill above his and his wife Jane’s home. He also added a zoysia lawn three years ago around the pool and is becoming more adept at keeping that looking green and lush.
  • Jane Lynch –  Jane is a retired dentist that transplanted to Columbus from Cincinnati almost 5 years ago. She loves growing fruit, vegetables, shrubs, bushes and trees; her challenge is learning how to grow them in North Carolina. 
  • Rafael Bravo – Rafael pasture raises hair sheep and chickens and has nurtured a family garden since 2016. Prior to retirement, he was involved in the mushroom industry for 25 years.
