What's New

Well Water Clinic

Virginia Cooperative Extension will be offering Well Water educational and testing clinics in Middlesex County and Essex County in 2018. The first meeting will be the ‘kickoff meeting’, where we’ll discuss basic well water safety and maintenance, we’ll discuss the proper procedures to take water samples, and we’ll hand out the sample kits. The kickoff meetings take roughly an hour.

The 4-H Food Challenge is a Chopped styled contest where youth get the opportunity to bring ingredients to life as a team, while also showcasing their knowledge of nutrition and food safety. On December 20, we'll work with some holiday favorite ingredients to explore nutrition and kitchen safety.  There's also opportunity to join a Gloucester 4-H Food Challenge Team for continued practice and competition with other youth teams in the spring.
