We Grow Citizens
Debbie Dillion, Union County Horticulture Agent launched the Extension Gardener Workshop Series in February. This series provides research based education on topics ranging from Fruits for the Home Garden, to Lawn and Lawn Alternatives. Union County residents have the opportunity to take these classes during the evening or daytime hours. The series continues through March and is the foundation for those wishing to continue into the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Training Program.
All UC Cooperative Extension Employees have taken or are scheduled to take a three day video production workshop made available to us through NC State Cooperative Extension. The course has given us the fundamental skills to produce videos from recording to post production editing.
We have extended this training program to Union County Soil & Water Conservation District employees and the Union County Ag Events Center employees and look forward to the opportunities we will have to share our programs and facilities with the residents of Union County.
We hope you enjoy this video featuring Cheri Bennett, Educator for the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.
