Virginia Cooperative Extension Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act
Join Virginia Cooperative Extension as it celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, which officially established the National Cooperative Extension System. Activities are being planned throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia to commemorate the centennial in 2014. Events will be held in local communities, recognition of our Extension volunteers, and even a Virginia Cooperative Extension Day on May 8! Check this site frequently for periodic centennial updates and articles about Virginia Cooperative Extension programs and events.
FREE Pruning Clinics
February is the best time to prune ornamentals. By pruning, you improve the plant's health, thus reducing the need for pesticides and improving water quality. We are offering free pruning clinics to assist the homeowners through hands-on learning. Register by calling 757-890-4940 or email email@example.com.
