Extension Office

Henrico County Extension Office

We are your connection to Virginia’s land-grant universities: Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.  We provide unbiased, objective, research-based information and educational programs to individuals, families, organizations, and communities in the three broad areas of: Agriculture and Natural Resources; 4-H Youth Development; and Family and Consumer Sciences.

Why Cooperative? We are the product of a cooperative agreement between Henrico County, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the United States Department of Agriculture. We provide educational programs directed to the needs of Henrico County citizens with the assistance of many dedicated volunteers. The Henrico Extension Leadership Council helps us identify these needs and is our partner in the design, implementation, and evaluation of our education programs.

Become a Henrico Master Gardener Volunteer

Volunteer involvement is one of the most important and unique aspects of Virginia Cooperative Extension. This is in keeping with Extension’s philosophy that active citizen participation in planning and implementation insures program success. Volunteers are a valuable resource and an integral part of the education mission of Extension.

Master Gardeners provide a resource for all Extension program areas and for professionals from many other agencies. They provide our community with locally identified programs, including answers to individual questions via hotlines and plant clinics; radio, newspaper, and computer links; educational programs to meet targeted needs; and guidance in making the natural environment accessible to all residents regardless of disabilities, incomes, or where they live.
