  • Pumpkins Make a Difference

     

    Pumpkins Make a DifferenceEach year, just in time for Halloween, sheriff's office staff and deputies deliver dozens of pumpkins to area schools. Teachers use the pumpkins for learning and fall decorating in their classrooms.

    Over the summer and into the fall, inmate work crews at the Jefferson County Jail raise the pumpkins, along with other plants, at the jail's greenhouse/garden area. The gardening and landscaping training inmates receive through the work crew program can help make them more marketable to potential employers after being released.
