This year’s Leadership Granville class learned a little more about Granville County Government by visiting the landfill, the Granville County Animal Shelter, and participating in round table discussions with department heads yesterday afternoon.
Here are some shots from today’s community service visit from students at Joe Toller-Oak Hill Elementary School. Thanks to all the students for their help today with the dogs and cats! Click on photos to enlarge.

The Granville Soil and Water District offers technical assistance and cost-sharing for applying Best Management Practices. Wayne Overton, from the Huntsboro Community, applied for cost-share through the North Carolina Agriculture Cost Share Program to plant orchard grass on highly erodible cropland. This program cost-shares up to 75% on many practices and offers incentive payments on others to reduce erosion and the transport of nutrients to our waterways. A retired farmer, Overton is planning to cut the orchard grass for hay. He also rented the District’s no-till planter, available to anyone in the county, for a cost of $10 per acre. For more information on cost-share or the no-till drill contact Warren Daniel at 919-693-4603 or email@example.com.
