The Hill and Hollow Garden Club recently received a $1,000 grant from the Little Kanawha Resource and Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council to plant new shade trees at the Camp Sheppard, Roane County 4-H Grounds in Gandeeville, WVa.
The Hill and Hollow Garden Club, along with the help of the WVU Extension Master Gardeners from Roane County, plan to purchase trees and plant trees in communal areas throughout the camp to provide shade for groups that utilize the county camp for various functions such as family reunions, business retreats, or summer camps.
The Little Kanawha RC&D Council is an organization devoted to community development in terms of resource development and conservation in the nine counties that they serve, including Calhoun, Jackson, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wetzel, Wirt, and Wood.
This private organization sponsored by the County Commissioners and Conservation Districts of Calhoun, Jackson, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wetzel, Wirt, and Wood Counties. The sponsors, in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the State Conservation Agency work together to improve the area’s natural resources and economy.
