Visiting 65 North Carolina Counties to Promote Furniture and Other Wood Products Made in North Carolina-Two Grant Projects

— Written By and last updated by

Harry Watt, NCSU Wood Products Specialist, is visiting CES offices in sixty-five counties in North Carolina from February to April 2016 to discuss two grant projects that are promoting North Carolina made furniture and other wood products sold to retail stores, colleges, universities, local governments and state agencies.

The purpose of these grants is to support a stronger North Carolina economy and to grow jobs in all of North Carolina. The grant projects work with architects that design public buildings, retail stores, purchasing departments of schools, universities, colleges, and state agencies.

We have two grants providing financial support from the Golden LEAF Foundation and the North Carolina Forest Service.

Scheduled to be at the Anson County Extension Center on Thursday, March 24th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. For more information call Harry Watt, Wood Products Specialist at 704-880-5034.
