The Culpeper 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 Culpeper 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.
VCE Needs Your Input! Complete our Quick Survey regarding Community Needs.
Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) takes pride in the premise that vital programming is based on the issues, problems, and needs of the people. A thorough analysis of the situation provides the rationale for deciding which problems should receive the time, energy, and resources of VCE. Both users and non-users of our programs are vital participants in situation analysis.
VCE Staff and the Culpeper Extension Leadership Council will be collecting data from key informant interviews, focus groups, and other data sources, but we would like input from YOU as well! Please take a few quick minutes to complete our survey by clicking the link below:
