Each kit, designed to support a medium-sized garden, encompasses approximately 30-40 seed packets along with comprehensive instructions for establishing and maintaining a successful vegetable operation.

These invaluable kits will be distributed until supplies last on Friday, February 2, 2024, from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. The distribution point is the newly designated Purdue Extension – Dubois County office located at Door #4, 505 West Fifth Street, Jasper, IN.
