We are very excited to start this season.  We will be having Grow Appalachia classes in our facility! We have 31 TN participants and 28 KY participants as well as 7 Community gardens, totaling 66 Gardens!

This growing season, we have some children who are home schooled join the program.  This will be an addition to their education plan.  I am so excited to have them participate this year.

Our first meeting/class was February 17 with a full house.
