What Extension Can Do For You
I’m sure that many of you have never heard of Virginia Cooperative Extension or VCE. I know I hadn’t until I started working with the Virginia Cooperative Extension Warren County office; and the thought is either you know everything about extension…or you don’t have a clue what extension is. I’m hoping that in reading this article, you will receive a firmer grasp of what Extension really is, and how they help Virginian’s on a daily basis.
