As we all try to adjust to our new lifestyles caused by COVID-19, N.C. Cooperative Extension is providing new ways for you to receive the research-based information you have always depended on from us. In an effort to provide this information safely, yet have some personal interaction, the N.C. Cooperaitve Extension, Granville/Person and Vance/Warren County Centers are collaborating on a series called Backyard Agriculture 101. This series is FREE and will be offered via the Zoom video conferencing platform. It will include topics such as: vegetable gardening, managing backyard poultry, small fruit production, managing small woodlots, small-scale livestock & pasture management, landscape basics, and IPM (bugs, weeds, and plant diseases). This is an 8-week “Zoom” series beginning Wednesday, April 15, 2020, and continuing each Wednesday through June 3 from 10–11:30 a.m. To see the full schedule with dates and time, and to register for this FREE series please visit http://go.ncsu.edu/BackyardAg101. (Please note that you will need to register through this site in order to receive a Zoom link, via email, to join this event.) We are excited to offer these programs and we look forward to your participation! Please note that space is limited. If you have questions, please contact us as indicated below.
