Farmers' Market/Info Desk

Our Info Desk is one of our most important duties.  We "man" this booth at many local events which include the Farmers' Market, the Newport News Fall Folklore Festival and many other others.  This booth provides two main functions:

  • Provides information on MG/VCE programs.

  • Provides VCE based horticultural information to homeowners and gardeners.
