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.
