As the state moves to Phase III of the COVID re-opening plan, Virginia Cooperative Extension and 4-H are resuming some in-person programming and services will continue to provide contactless and distance-based methods, such as using drop boxes for samples and pickup, phones, and virtual delivery of educational programming.
This website will provide current information on local office hours, programming, and more. We look forward continuing to serve our community.
The Greene County Office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is your local connection to Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University. Through educational programs based on research and developed with input from local stakeholders, we help the people of Greene County improve their lives. We provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Community Viability.
New and Upcoming Programs
Women In Agriculture Gathering 2021
Registration is now open for our 4th Annual Virginia Women In Agriculture Gathering! The Gathering provides women farmers, landowners, and agriculture enthusiasts with opportunities to network with peers, hone technical skills, and discuss solutions to the unique challenges they face.
Every year since 2018, we have welcomed approximately 100 women for learning and fellowship. We are excited to announce a new, expanded format for the 2021 Women In Agriculture Gathering, which will take place on May 14th, 18th and 21st at four locations. This will allow us to reach more farmers across the Commonwealth, as well as conform with COVID-19 protocols.

Central Virginia Beginning Farmer Virtual Education and Networking YouTube Channel
"Check out our new YouTube Channel just for beginning farmers! (click here to be taken to the youtube channel) These sessions are geared towards individuals just getting started or exploring farming and provide a great basic overview of each topic. These are enough to get you some general information so you can start making your own opinions on if these will be good opportunities for your farm and will hopefully give you more questions and areas to explore as you start your farm!"
