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.

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!"
