Advisory cluster group meets in Guilford County
County Extension directors from Rockingham, Alamance and Guilford counties recently kicked off meetings of their advisory leaders’ cluster with a meeting and tour in Guilford County. Advisory councils in the Northwest District are divided into county clusters. The directors from this cluster met with Steva Allgood, a former Guilford advisory council member, who is now on the State Advisory Council, and Perry Graves, a citizens’ advisor for the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University.
The three county directors reported on a hot topic from their individual counties. Rett Davis of Alamance County talked about diminishing farmland in his county. Rockingham County Extension Director Scott Schoulars described efforts to develop a local equine center.
Two Guilford County 4-H’ers described their new “Pet Pals” program, in which youth bring companion animals to visit nursing home residents. The group also toured the Cam-Too Nursery, a large Guilford County camellia producer that works closely with Guilford agent Garry Bradley. The advisory cluster plans to meet again soon and bring in all county advisors.
