The Amherst 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 Amherst 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.

What's New



Attention Amherst County's Extension supporters! Many of you know our Unit Administrative Assistant, Helen B. Williams. Helen has worked in the Extension office and supported all our programs for 65 amazing years! We created an endowment in her name last year, and are more than 1/3 of the way to reaching it. Once reached, several hundred dollars each year will be available for the Amherst Extension office for all programs,  including Amherst County's 4H summer camp. Please contact the office to make donations. THANK YOU!
