Wood Lane Farm is now greener than ever. Green as in the volume of lettuce being grown at its greenhouses, and green as to the money being raised.
The subsidiary of Wood Lane Industries has one of its two greenhouses at the Ag Incubator Foundation filled with four varieties of lettuce.
The farm is now specializing in the lettuce which is being sold in addition to the long-standing community supported agriculture (CSA) shares.
According to Jessica Nagel, who helps oversee the farm, the garden aspects of the business is transitioning into a training program for those with disabilities employed by the farm. The training received in gardening skills, from seeding, planting, watering, harvesting and general tending the garden, can then be used to join the general workforce.

A healthy vegetable garden saves money for those who eat from its bounty. When those eating are the inmates at the Wood County jail, the savings are documented.
According to Sandy Snow, the food service coordinator for the Wood County Justice Center, last year more than $5,200 was saved.
The 90-foot square garden may not look elaborate this year, but Snow and her crew of inmates are working to assure this year's garden will be as productive as the 2013 version.
One of the inmates and Snow both noted when they received the plants some were just "twigs." The tomato plants have already begun to produce the first fruits.
