For more than a decade, the Insight Garden Program has helped transform prisoners’ lives through connection to nature. Our model is a real solution to some of the most pressing issues impacting prisoners and people in reentry – as well as increasing the safety and security of our communities. We are now at an exciting crossroads in our evolution, preparing for national expansion.
With our evidence-based “inner” and “outer” gardening approaches to change, the IGP does the essential work of providing people in prison with integrated vocational and life skills that facilitates their transformation from the “inside-out” — so they become productive members of society when they leave prison.

With the United States spending more than $80 billion/year nationally on the prison-industrial complex, we can’t afford not to do this work.
We use a participatory and holistic approach to change.
