At the beginning of April 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.
The assistance provided is in the form of a voucher for 35-dollars that can be redeemed for vegetable plants, seed etc. at several different locations in Roane County. These grants run out quickly so be ready at the beginning of April to get in on this opportunity. Our next Garden Grant event is currently scheduled for Thursday April 1, 2021.
