The Hanover County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is your local connection to Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University. Through educational programs based on research and developed with input from local stakeholders, we help the people of Hanover County improve their lives. We provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Community Viability.


For your safety and the safety of VCE staff, the Extension office is temporarily closed to walk-in clientele.  If you have specific questions please call 804-752-4310 and we will do our best to assist you.  We urge you to take all necessary steps to stay healthy and follow guidelines outlined by local health departments. We look forward to continuing to serve the community in new and innovative ways.
