Help Extension Work Better for YOU!

The Henrico County Office of Virginia Cooperation Extension is seeking your input. Every five years, Extension conducts a situation analysis to identify emerging needs in the community. Please help us ensure that we are best meeting your needs by completing our survey and sharing your thoughts on how we should direct our resources to provide educational programs. As we plan and design our programs, we need your opinions on the most critical issues for Henrico residents.  https://bit.ly/vcehenricosurvey

Join the SMART Scapes Program

Residents can learn about maintaining and enhancing their landscape through proper planning. The program includes a site visit by trained Master Gardener volunteers. Master Gardener teams educate homeowners on best management practices for a beautiful, healthy and sustainable landscape. This includes a focus on conservation practices to restore and protect our local watersheds, reducing the use of water, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides. Learn more…

Henrico 4-H Youth Development

The youth development education program of Virginia Cooperative Extension, 4-H is rich with learning experiences in which young people partner with caring adults and volunteers in a fellowship unlike any other program available to youth today. Through 4-H, young people are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that emphasize 4-H’s “learning by doing” philosophy of youth development.  We bring research-based information from our land grant universities – Virginia Tech and Virginia State University – to the youth in our community.  The mission of 4-H is to develop leadership, citizenship, and life skills. 

Last year, Henrico County 4-H had over 6,000 youth enrolled in 4-H programming and 175 youth and adult volunteers! Learn more…
