Illinois Prisons Go Green With Fresh Produce Gardens

Illinois prisons are doing their part to “go green” by growing fresh produce. The Illinois Department of Corrections has begun a vocational opportunity for inmates at 23 prisons and several work camps, teaching horticulture skills at gardens on the prison grounds.


The Department of Corrections has donated over 5,000 pounds of fresh produce to local community food banks, and enough to feed inmates and staff at the facilities. The prison gardens are part of the Department’s recently released sustainability initiative.
