WVSU Extension Service to Host Vegetable Cornucopia Table Piece Workshop Thursday, Nov. 17
INSTITUTE, W.Va.— West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Services’ Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) team will host a Vegetable Cornucopia Table Piece Workshop on Thursday, Nov. 17, as part of their Community Garden Workshop Series. 

This workshop will be held at the demonstration kitchen of the Dr. Hazo W. Carter, Jr. Integrated Research and Extension Building on WVSU’s campus, building 36 on the campus map found here, from 6–8 p.m.

Participants of this workshop will be putting together vegetable cornucopia table centerpieces as well as acquiring more information on the topic of profiting techniques from garden planting and vegetable harvesting.

All supplies, cornucopia materials, and horn wicker baskets will be provided by our Extension ANR team and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Oasis grant with which they are funded. Participants will be making their own table pieces to take home for personal use. 

The ANR team's Community Garden Workshop Series was made to promote the usage of gardening resources and agricultural sciences, and will be held every third Thursday of each month (with minor adjustments due to November and December holiday schedule) through October 2023. Participants of these workshops will learn proper gardening, planting, harvesting, and garden profit techniques while also participating in the planting of a large-scale community garden planned for next year's use.

These workshops are part of a federally funded grant provided by the USDA NRCS. All 13 workshops are free to attend and are available for any West Virginia community member.
