Jail Gardens

The vegetable gardens at the Jail are doing really well this year. There is an abundance of produce.

Inmates snap green beans and peas, preparing them for the kitchen.

The inmates have also been harvesting squash, onions, and potatoes. A huge crop of corn and other produce was planted this year.

Behind the Jail is a large garden with rows of corn and potatoes.

Growing all this food at the jail helps keep the cost of feeding the inmates down. The inmates take pride in their work and appreciate the opportunity to be outside. Any extra food is given to the local soup kitchens.
