Virtual Vegetable Growers Series


ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Typically, Virginia Cooperative Extension offers programs locally, in person, with live demonstrations. Since they are striving to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, Extension wanted to offer a similar program, offering similar information, in a socially- distanced way. Because after all, everyone still needs to eat and the vegetables are still being grown and attacked by pests.

Webinars will begin at noon.
