This summer Linn County Public Health will be supporting container gardening for ASAC’s Cedar Rapids residential treatment programs. The three growing sites will be located behind ASAC’s Recovery Center, up by the basketball courts for CD+ and at the Heart of Iowa campus. With the help of grant funding, the county will provide all of the materials and plants needed to create and maintain the container gardens. Linn County Public Health staff will also conduct client education on vegetable gardening.
Amy Lepowsky of Linn County Public Health will be working with ASAC on this project. The produce raised will be used in our main campus and Heart of Iowa kitchens. We thank Linn County Public Health for selecting ASAC for this healthy and fun educational project!
