|Growing Food Crops Year-Round
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, through their EQIP Program, is taking applications for Seasonal High Tunnel Systems that allow for extending the growing season of vegetable gardening operations. These plastic covered systems are efforts by USDA and the Jefferson County Soil & Water Conservation District to increase the seasonal production of locally grown fruits and vegetables. The Soil and Water Conservation District received a grant to help support the USDA effort by extending this opportunity to urban gardeners, non-profits and churches.
For more information on the program and how to apply, contact Kurt Mason at (859) 490-0113
