Garden

The jail garden was started in 2006 and initially covered one acre, since that time it has expanded to one and a half acres. This project has allowed the jail to reduce food costs and provide fresh fruits and vegetables to the inmates. The jail has also been able to donate surplus produce to the local Salvation Army and Senior Citizens Center of Hopkins County. The startup costs each year are reduced by donations from Crop Production Services of Slaughters, KY and discounted items from Calhoun Feed Services of Madisonville, KY. The remaining cost is covered by the Community Service program at no cost to the County or tax payers.
