The Garden Seed Program offers an excellent opportunity for individuals to supplement their income by means of a vegetable garden that will provide fresh produce for eating and canning. To qualify, the annual household income must be at or below 125 percent of the current federal poverty income guidelines. Eligible program participants receive vouchers to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and/or plants from local vendors. Vouchers are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Contact the Big Sandy Area Community Action service office in your county to begin your application process.
Information you will need to supply:
- Names and Social Security numbers of all household members.
- Metered utility bill to verify residence.
- Proof of all household income.
The Garden Seen Program is funded by a Community Services Block Grant (CSBG).
