Extension Working in Your Community

The Pendleton County Extension office provides aid to farmers, gardeners and homeowners, but also local educational programs for area families, businesses, and communities. Through our office you will find Extension Service information on all of these subjects. If you have questions, you can always call our office at 304-358-2286 or email us.

We are also your link to other WVU Extension offices and to West Virginia University’s related colleges. WVU’s Pendleton 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. We also link you to eXtension, a national clearinghouse on Extension Service information, gathered by thousands of Extension agents and specialists across the United States.

Each WVU Extension office provides the public with information on many topics from various research-based resources. The county office faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in the following areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources (home horticulture, pests, etc.), 4-H & Youth Development, Families & Health, and Community, Economic, & Workforce 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.

Part of the National Cooperative Extension System

All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
