Accomack County Extension
Virginia Cooperative Extension has a statewide mission for educational programs in agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences and 4-H youth. Assistance is provided through individual consultations, group meetings, news media, newsletters, field research, publications, and telephone contacts.
Services are directed toward individuals, businesses, industries, communities and other agencies. Helping people to solve their problems through educational programs is our business. Extension programs are supported by faculty at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and Virginia State University, and are delivered by local staff and volunteers here in the County of Accomack.
