Jail Inmate Garden

Thursday, September 10, 2015

 

The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office is extremely excited about harvest time for a two and a half acre garden located behind Woodland Park’s softball fields in Lenlock. That garden is their inmate garden and it is helping to supply the Calhoun County Jail kitchen with fresh fruits and vegetables. The garden is worked by jail inmates who are cleared to take care of it. Chief Deputy Matthew Wade says the project is good for rehabilitation. The goal of the garden is to feed all the inmates in the more than 400-bed jail. But, even if it doesn’t it still contributes to some jail food costs and gives the inmates skillfulness.
