Virginia Cooperative Extension
We provide unbiased, objective, research-based information and educational programs to individuals, families, organizations, and communities in the three broad areas of: Agriculture and Natural Resources; 4-H Youth Development; and Family and Consumer Sciences.
We are the product of a cooperative agreement between Henrico County, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the United States Department of Agriculture. We provide educational programs directed to the needs of Henrico County citizens with the assistance of many dedicated volunteers. The Henrico Extension Leadership Council helps us identify these needs and is our partner in the design, implementation, and evaluation of our education programs.
Virginia Cooperative Extension enables people to improve their lives through an educational process that uses scientific knowledge focused on issues and needs.
