The West Virginia University Extension Service, in partnership with the West Virginia Community Educational Outreach Service (WVCEOS), will be offering a series of virtual classes in April as a part of the “A Spring Patchwork of Proud People” event. These courses are free and open to the public.

Connie Wolfinger, WV CEOS state president, says will cover a number of topics, with something for everyone.

The event will take place April 19-23, with morning and afternoon programs. Those interested will choose the classes that interest them and register online.

“A Spring Patchwork of Proud People” will offer programs on container gardening, home cleaning remedies, medical literacy — keeping better records, keeping fit at home, the meaning of traditional quilt blocks, finding an app for you, WV microbreweries and spring wild WV heritage foods.

Experts from the WVU Extension Service will give food demonstrations on cooking with ramps, vegetarian slow cooker recipes and Mexican breakfast foods.

Craft classes include making a beehive basket and a summer wreath.

All courses will be offered through Zoom and can be accessed via computer, tablet or smartphone.

An educational session on “Zoom basics” will be offered at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday, April 16. Visit the WVU Extension Service CEOS conference registration page to sign up for the conference. Deadline for registration is April 14.
