The Organic Garden At San Quentin State Prison - The Insight Garden Program

Hello my viewers,

Our prison system is an abomination and it is run as a private enterprise by the Cabal.  This program came forth as a glimmer of hope of what can be done to help reconnect lost souls.

Please read on and share this with others.  It is inspiring and brings us hope of a new age.

GARDENING IN PRISON

Posted on January 3, 2014 at nextworldtv.com by Bibi Farber 

Interesting: the rates for recidivism are below 10% for the men who participated in this program vs. over 60% for those who did not. We refer to the organic garden at the San Quentin State Prison. The Insight Garden Program provides rehabilitation to self-selected prisoners through the process of growing vegetables. They not only care for the plants outdoors, these men attend classes where they learn about landscaping and gardening, including planning, budgeting and design, irrigation, soil amendment, seasonal garden maintenance, and plant ID and propagation.

From the program's website www.insightgardenprogram.org: "Through the act of caring for plants, the qualities of responsibility, discipline and mindfulness transfer to the interpersonal realm — by growing plants, people also "grow." By working in an organic flower garden, men also become ecologically literate — developing an awareness of their connection to and impact on the world around them. They learn about the interconnectedness of human and ecological systems and how the principles of the natural world, such as diversity and cooperation, transfer to all levels of human systems. This approach of "re-connection through nature" is integrated with opportunities for personal development. Because nature cultivates awareness, men learn to respond rather than react — and become productive members of society when they leave prison." We hope to see this program expand, with organic gardening programs in every single prison in the US.
