Sherrell Thompson, EC Extension Office:
Earlier in the year the Edmonson County Soil Conversation Office canceled their annual tree seedling giveaway due to COVID-19. The UK Cooperative Extension Service of Edmonson County is very excited to partner with Soil Conservation to continue this program as one of our Extension-on-the-Go kits. We feel that it is so important during this time to continue as many programs and services as we can to serve our community while also protecting our community. We currently have 100 tree bundles available.
Each participant will receive 9 tree seedlings completely free of charge and delivered to your home. This program is only for Edmonson County residents and the trees are only available while supplies last.
