Holiday Class Series

The end of 2020 is here and the holidays are in sight! If you’re looking for ideas to make this holiday season special, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center has got you covered. Join us for a free, three week Holiday Class Series, where we’ll go over caring for holiday greenery, gift and giving ideas, and last but not least, holiday cooking.

Each week we’ll provide short educational videos on one of these topics, culminating in an end-of-the-week live Zoom class. Zoom classes will be held on Fridays from noon to 1 p.m., but don’t worry if you can’t make it, classes will be recorded.

The Holiday Class Series Zoom schedule can be found below.

Week 1 Theme: Nature – Poinsettia and Live Christmas Tree Care

Week 2 Theme: Gifts and Giving – Live Christmas Music Concert

Week 3 Theme: Cooking – Smaller Holiday Meals

Videos will start publishing on November 30, with our first Zoom class on December 4 at noon. We hope to “see” you there!
