Recently, as ICIO was getting prepped for the winter, an unexpected snowstorm hit the area, causing roads to be extremely slippery. This past February a storm of this caliber caused the transport bus to slide back down the hill going to ICIO, ending nearly sideways in the road (see picture). Nobody wanted to repeat that day and ICIO’s ordered gravel had not been delivered yet (days late) so a plan B had to be formulated. Special Projects Sergeant, Mike Curtis, contacted the local Clearwater County Road Department (CCRD) for assistance.

As we pass into the winter, residents at Idaho Correctional Institution-Orofino continue efforts at the Givens Hall garden to produce vegetables. 

The greenhouse is just getting started for the winter and seeds are germinating!  Soon fresh vegetables from this winter project will be served in the kitchen. 

Sprouting and on the future menu: radishes, lettuce, and even watermelon! The photo was taken before sunrise as grow lights luminate the walls.
