Local man takes state leadership in agriculture education

A Waynesville man has been tapped to lead the state’s Project Food, Land & People program, a national education curriculum covering a wide range of agriculture-related subjects.

Retired high school agriculture teacher Charles Boyd, who currently owns WNC Landscaping, has also served for six years on the Haywood Soil and Water Conservation District’s board of supervisors. In addition, he chairs the N.C. Association’s State Education Committee, representing North Carolina regionally and nationally. 

The Food, Land & People program gives educators the tools to enhance student understanding about the relationships between people, land use and agriculture, and it’s one of several workshops required to earn the N.C. environmental educator certification.
