NC Cooperative Extension – Richmond County Center

NC Cooperative Extension, Richmond County Center, supports the citizens of the county and region with research based information and resources to help individuals and communities realize their dreams and goals. Our focus is agriculture, horticulture, health, nutrition, and developing youth through 4-H.


Agriculture and Food

NC State Extension connects farmers, agribusinesses and communities with vital research-based information and technology. Research at NC State targets society’s grand challenges. Extension delivers this research directly into the hands of North Carolinians, helping them to translate knowledge into everyday solutions.

 Health and Nutrition

Extension offers a wealth of educational programs that address public health issues, improve economic well-being, and help people make healthier, better-informed decisions. Programs range from local foods, food safety, and food preservation to gardening and environmental efforts.

 4-H Youth Development

4-H is the largest youth development organization in North Carolina. Hundreds of thousands of young people learn the skills to succeed through 4-H educational programs and camps. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University conduct 4-H programs where youth learn by doing.
