The County of Ventura Probation Agency and the Area Agency on Aging recently created a vegetable garden site at the Juvenile Justice Complex in Oxnard. Kids at the complex were responsible for planting, growing and caring for the garden. The recent inaugural harvest was just picked and the garden-fresh vegetables were distributed through the Senior Lunch Program, on-site at the Juvenile Justice kitchen and at local food banks. The garden was made possible through contributions and support from Agromin and other businesses and community-based organizations. The first crop of tomatoes looks great!
