We have to keep some of our lawn (HOA rules) green, but I want to be good to our frogs, and insects who live in our lawn, and prep it for a native plant area. What is a good fertilizer?
Hi. How do I go about getting my soil tested?
Many thanks to Kimberly M. Hitchman - State Farm Agent for her insurance office donating pizza and salad to our guests last Friday. This was a kick-off to their upcoming Zoom sessions for Union Mission guests covering physical activity, stress management, and making your money grow. It's a great partnership between the Mission, BB&T, Cook Diana Bowens, and Crystal Barber of the Virginia Cooperative Extension - Portsmouth of Virginia Tech / VT faculty and staff. Thanks for making a difference in our community!
We learned a lot during our Teen Camp this year, including making a canjo, cooking, using plant dyes, and much more! Thank you to The Chrysler Museum of Art, Chrysler Museum Glass Studio, Apple MacArthur Center, Virginia Cooperative Extension - Portsmouth, and Commodore Theatre for the workshops and tours!
Joselyn Hansbarger and Leisa Brissett from ABNB Federal Credit Union, volunteered for the Virginia Cooperative Extension - Portsmouth, Reality Store at Woodrow Wilson High School (Portsmouth, Virginia). Karen Munden, Cooperative Extension, Senior Agent and her volunteers helped students learn how to make decisions on money management during the simulation.
