OUTSIDE OUR BOX
Real Rehabilitation
Dr. Mercola special focus on the benefits to rehabilitating prisoners by gardening in prisons .. "Preliminary research in California prisons suggests that among prisoners who participated in gardening programs, less than 10% returned to prison. Growing food from seed, many prisoners finally experience success after a lifetime of failures, which helps to build self-esteem and skills for finding a job after release .. Some prison garden programs use their harvests to feed inmates; others donate produce to food banks, churches, nursing homes and low-income communities."
