Cooperative Extension

Agriculture, Families and 4-H Programming

Cooperative Extension, a part of Park and Recreation, is a joint program of Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and state and local governments. Virginia Cooperative Extension provides programs and information covering the broad areas of agriculture, families and 4-H. Our goal, along with our Master Gardeners, is to help our citizens maintain and improve the quality of their environment. We and our volunteers proudly offer programs such as diet and nutrition education, financial management, gardening and lawn care, identification services, and youth camps and clubs.
