You can grow your own food. We can help.

Eating Green Year Round

The Pulaski County Sheltered Workshop's garden encompasses two greenhouses and a large outdoor plot. Shelter employees, physically and mentally disabled individuals, participate in every part of our operation: seed selection and planting, composting, worm farming, research, and harvest. The goal our our Eating Green Year Round project is to teach these individuals about healthy eating and to teach and encourage them to grow their own gardens and change their eating habits. We plant vegetables and herbs from local seed sellers and use only organic, non-GMO seeds. Our harvests is given to the shelter employees (of which there are 60+) and the rest is shared with a local food bank that serves 250 families living below the poverty line.
