Story in Brief

In response to pandemic-related business shut-downs and cessation of traditional face-to-face Extension programming, every member of the Forsyth County Extension team learned new skills to continue providing clients with factual, research-based information across digital media channels. Forsyth County Extension’s response included short, on-demand YouTube webinars covering home gardening, food preservation and youth education topics; weekly Facebook webinars on common landscape weeds and pests; factsheets; and social media posts to alert clients to the latest safety protocols, assistance programs, educational and entertaining Extension webinars from around the state, and general wellness activities. Forsyth County Extension agents also continued to offer traditional Extension classes through distance education channels.
