Below is a review of the resources created, where you can find them, and a little preview of what is to come!

Live from Currituck Extension

Live from Currituck Extension began streaming daily on March 23, 2020, for about a half-hour from 11:30 a.m. to noon. This series focuses on our four areas of expertise: agriculture, family and consumer science, youth development (4-H), and community development. Material is relevant for both youth and adults, and includes question and answer sessions, made possible with YouTube’s chat function. Programming has been reduced to once weekly on Wednesdays. You can find the playlist of all of our live broadcasts at:

Take Care of Yourself Challenge

This virtual challenge highlighted all of the things that keep us healthy and happy. While the challenge itself has ended, you can still access the educational videos and download the printable resources. This 5-week challenge focused on five topics – making time for yourself, exercising, sleeping, gratitude, and a healthy diet. You can find the videos and links here:

This Week in the Garden

This series followed a garden from planning and planting through harvest with weekly updates. Each post contained a short video update of the garden and a related article. Throughout the series, we had occasional giveaways of gardening supplies, question and answer sessions with our subscribers, and troubleshooting for when things inevitably didn’t go right. You can review all twenty-two videos here:

Lawns and Landscapes

Because spring and summer are traditionally the times we receive a high volume of gardening and landscaping calls, we’ve tried to anticipate some of your questions and produce short videos to help. You can view the entire catalog of these videos here:

Youth Programming  

Youth programming has been a bit more restricted but no less available to those willing to register. Our traditional presentation and public speaking contests went virtual this year for the first time ever. Eight youth from Currituck County competed on the district level and six went on to compete against participants from across the state. Our electric workshops also went virtual, complete with free project kits and weekly instructional videos for youth. Further, our annual poultry show is underway and the competition will be held virtually. More information about 4-H opportunities can be found on our website.

Educational Articles

Staff have been producing a number of educational articles. You can monitor our website to stay up to date in real-time or subscribe to our social media outlets (@CurrituckCES). To review those articles produced during the pandemic, please visit:
