Cayuga Correctional Facility garden benefits a local food pantry

In January of 2018 the incarcerated individuals in the vocational horticulture program began growing vegetables in the greenhouse at Cayuga CF. In the Springtime seedlings were transplanted into an outdoor garden area. Through their diligent tending of the plants they are now reaping the fruits of their labor as they see and harvest the vegetables they have grown. Inmates have been given the opportunity to learn through hands on experience how to grow vegetables and are grateful that they can help others in the local community by providing them with wholesome, healthy, organic produce. The crops include zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, carrots, beets, cucumbers, string beans, potatoes, peppers, kale, 2 different kinds of squash, lettuce, onions and snap peas. The produce is given to the local food pantry in Moravia, NY.
