It’s spring and Garden Time! The Boone County Jail garden is planted and growing and off to a good start. Inmates have already harvested several pounds of lettuce.
This garden lies on an acre to the north of the jail and is planted and maintained by 309 State Inmates and other trusted inmates here at the jail. Historically, the produce has saved an average of $14,000 a year on food costs for Boone County Jail inmates.
Updates and new pictures will follow as the season progresses.
