BEREA, Ky. (AP) — A couple of groups are teaming up to give indoor hydroponic grow kits to more than 1,600 children and their families in Kentucky. Save the Children and agriculture tech leader AppHarvest say they will provide the kits to people in six eastern Kentucky counties. The counties are Floyd, Harlan, Knott, Leslie, Owsley and Perry. The companies say the goal is to educate children in the region about growing their own nutritious food. Participants will receive seeds and other supplies. Live instruction is also available.
