The state plays an important part in the Live-at-Home Program by giving various pamphlets pertaining to the specific health of the individual. With all agencies working for the good of the whole brings about fewer deaths, decreased diseases, render economical as well as health satisfaction.

The Live-at-Home Program was put on county-wide basis October 6, 1934. The patrons, vocational teachers, and the supervisor met and organized a county council. The purpose of this organization was to work this program and assist farm families in improving their living conditions and at the same time raise the health standard.

The minimum goal of the program is to encourage patrons and all farmers to strive to have a year-round garden which will adequately supply a wide variety of vegetables to be used while fresh and enough to be conserved for out of season use as, canned, dried or stored products.

Poultry and orcharding are treated on the same basis as gardening. Without such food elements, health is poor.
