Garden Grants

At the beginning of March each year, Roane County Cooperative Ministries (RCCM) encourages our community to grow a vegetable garden and provides assistance to those of low income. A vegetable garden not only provides fresh, nutritious produce for our tables, but it can also save you money, provide some exercise and provide an activity to enjoy with your children, grandchildren and friends.

The assistance provided is in the form of a voucher for 50-dollars that can be redeemed for vegetable plants, seed, etc. at AgCentral Farmers Cooperative in Harriman and Ace Hardware in Kingston. The voucher can only be used at one locations – it can not be split between the two locations. These grants run out quickly so be ready on March 29th from 10AM-2PM at Roane County Park Shelter 6 to get in on this opportunity.

Pentecost Celebration

Come celebrate Pentecost with us this year! It takes the form of a birthday party for the Christian church. Churches from all denominations come together to celebrate. There is live music, fun for the kids, food, cake and ice cream. This event is Saturday, June 4th 2022 from 4PM-8PM at Southwest Point, 1226 S Kentucky Street in Kingston, TN.

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza

The Cookie Extravaganza is another opportunity to bring us together in preparation for the Christmas season. Bakers prepare their cookies and may enter them in the contest for the best of a variety of categories. We have entrees from professional bakers, first time bakers, Girl Scouts etc. It is a wonderful time of fellowship cookie sampling and an opportunity to stock up on a variety of wonderful treats to serve over the holidays. Look for this event in early December.
