Putting Knowledge to Work!
The West Virginia University Extension works to provide “solutions in your community” through key programs and resources, including agriculture and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; food and nutrition; health and wellness; financial planning; and home gardening. These research-based programs and services are available to all Calhoun County residents thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners, including the Board of Education and County Commission.
- Despite COVID-19, Calhoun County WVU Extension and their partners provided virtual 4-H camping, a virtual youth livestock show and sale, and other distance learning opportunities. Additionally, Calhoun County WVU Extension focused on assisting in meeting the needs of the community through agriculture and natural resources and food security efforts.
- Calhoun County WVU Extension faculty were able to explore professional development, engage in curriculum development and program piloting, and collaborate with faculty around the state on a variety of projects and programs that will serve the community and the University in the future.
