As the state moves to Phase III of the COVID re-opening plan, Virginia Cooperative Extension and 4-H are resuming some in-person programming and services will continue to provide contactless and distance-based methods, such as using drop boxes for samples and pickup, phones, and virtual delivery of educational programming.

This website will provide current information on local office hours, programming, and more. We look forward continuing to serve our community.

What's New 

Market season is almost here and VCFC is hiring!  Do you know anyone who might be interested in a fun, seasonal (April through October) part-time job?  We are hiring a Token Operator to provide great customer service and operate our SNAP and Virginia Fresh Match program at Bowling Green Farmers Market.  This position is approximately 6-7 hours per week and includes operating the program at the farmers market on Saturdays, plus approximately 1 hour of after-market reconciliation that can be completed from home after the market closes. 

The SNAP match program is making healthy fresh food accessible and affordable for many low-income Caroline County families.  This is a great job for college students, teachers, or anyone looking for income to supplement another job or wanting to make a difference in their community.   Please click on Flyer for job description.
