The health department has received grant funds for a new community project that started Spring 2014. The Project is Step by Step to a Healthier Woodford County Thru Square Foot Gardening. The goal is to build square foot gardens in the community, teach square foot gardening (SFG) (a different way to grow vegetables and herbs) that is easy, inexpensive, efficient, takes less space and is fun. The grant provides supplies to assemble gardens. Gardens can be raised to accomodate individuals with limited mobility. The square foot garden application is posted above. If you are a church, agency or business that is interested please call the heath department at 859-873-4541 for additional information or complete the application posted above and return it to the Woodford County Health Department. The project is funded by NACCHO.
