Insight Garden Program

Founded in 2002, IGP is a nonprofit organization that facilitates an innovative curriculum combined with vocational gardening and landscaping training so that people in prison can reconnect to self, community, and the natural world. This “inner” and “outer” gardening approach transforms lives, ends ongoing cycles of incarceration, and creates safer communities. We currently run our program in ten adult prisons and one youth facility in the state of California, as well as two programs in Indiana and one in Ohio. In addition, we recently expanded our work to include support for individuals in our programs who are being released from incarceration. For more information, please see ​​.
