On Thursday, July 9, 2015, WNC Landscaping had a wonderful and welcomed visit from the summer camp students at Clyde Elementary School in Clyde, NC.
The young people ranged in ages from five to twelve and were led by Brandy Hyatt Littrell, After School and Summer Camp Coordinator (and former student of Mr. Boyd) and several other adult leaders. The students were pleasant, attentive and asked wonderful questions despite it being a hot July day.
Students learned about the Fraser fir trees grown by WNC Landscaping & Christmas trees and how these trees are an important part of agriculture and economy in Haywood County and in North Carolina. The students examined young tree seedlings up to mature trees ready for harvest in the late fall. WNC Landscaping & Christmas trees had the students investigate the field and the trees and were encouraged to ask any questions that came to mind. A favorite question asked by one young lady was, “what colors do the trees grow?” One very bright young man inquired as to what kind of seeds are on the trees and how do we get the seeds to grow into trees.
The minds of these young men and women were amazing to watch and we encourage any of them to come back and visit as well as to look into agriculture and farming in North Carolina, especially in our home of Haywood County.
