Delaware County Jail Garden Expanding

The words “jail” and “gardening” are not those that usually go together- but at the Delaware County Jail they’ve been together for quite some time.

Corrections officers created an Inmate Garden several years ago and Sheriff Thomas Mills posted on Facebook that the garden was expanded this year by sixty feet.

Mills says inmates who have demonstrated good behavior and volunteer for gardening assignments spend time planting, weeding and tending to the Inmate Garden.

In addiiton there are a few barrels in front of the entrances planted with annual flowers.
