People in Your Community…Knowledge at Your Doorstep
The Calhoun County Extension office provides aid to farmers, gardeners, and homeowners, but also local educational programs for area families, businesses, and communities. On our website you will find Extension related information on all of these subjects. If you have questions, you can always call our office or email us.
We are also your link to other WVU Extension offices and to West Virginia University’s related colleges. WVU’s Calhoun County Extension Office is part of the national land-grant system. Each office has the same mission as its foundation: to help people put knowledge to work.
Each WVU Extension Office can provide the public with information on many topics from many resources. The Calhoun County Extension Office faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in the following areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources, 4-H Youth Development and Family & Community Development. To meet and support the needs of local people and communities, county faculty and staff involve local residents in developing and leading specific programs and activities.
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.
