As the state moves to Phase III of the COVID re-opening plan, Virginia Cooperative Extension and 4-H are resuming some in-person programming and services will continue to provide contactless and distance-based methods, such as using drop boxes for samples and pickup, phones, and virtual delivery of educational programming.
This website will provide current information on local office hours, programming, and more. We look forward continuing to serve our community.

Become a 4-H Volunteer
Each year, 4-H members participate in a community service project. This year’s project will focus on recycling. Several recycling receptacles have been placed around the county for citizens to recycle. The 4-H members and volunteers will collect those recycled items and take them to the appropriate recycling center. We need your help, become a volunteer by contacting the Sussex County VCE office.
