Commodity leaders tour research campus, nursery
A group participating in the Commodity Leadership Development Program recently toured the N.C. Research Campus in Kannapolis. The campus, which will house food and nutrition research programs of North Carolina universities, is being developed by entrepreneur David Murdock and the state of North Carolina. The commodity leaders are participating in a four-part workshop series dealing with negotiation, public policy and legal issues related to non-profits, as well as the research campus tour. The program is led by Lanny Hass and Eleanor Stell of Cooperative Extension's Personal and Organizational Development group. During the research campus tour, the leaders visited the core lab, under construction, that will house high-tech research equipment. The group also traveled to Mecklenburg County to visit Baucom Nursery, a large green industry operation.
