Virginia Cooperative Extension puts university knowledge into the hands of people. We are credible experts and educators who provide information, education, and tools you can use every day to improve your life.

We are a product of cooperation among local, state, and federal governments in partnership with tens of thousands of citizens, who, through local Extension Leadership Councils, help design, implement, and evaluate our needs-driven programs.

Visit one of our 108 local offices, explore our website, read a publication, attend a program, or join a 4-H club — just a few of the many ways you can tap into our knowledge and use it to make a difference in your life.
