Extension Minute

— Written By and last updated by

Welcome to the Sampson County Extension Minute. I’m Brad Hardison with North Carolina Cooperative Extension. I am the Horticulture agent serving Sampson County. During this segment, we will be discussing the effects of COVID-19 on the extension service.

As a result of COVID-19, our office will be closed to the general public beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, until further notice. We will establish a designated “drop off/pick up box” at our office entrance area. Items such as soil boxes, publications, or other correspondence will be collected in this manner. Make sure all packages are clearly labeled for the appropriate staff member. NC State University has directed all agents to develop online programs and other delivery methods to meet your needs. If you are interested in online programming, please call the office at 910-592-7161 to add your name, phone number and email address to our contact list. Please see our website for more information.

This is Brad Hardison with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Sampson County Center. Thanks for tuning in to the Sampson County Extension Minute.
