Lettuce Grow Garden Foundation
Lettuce Grow Garden Foundation began with one correctional facility garden in 2008. This year we are working in 12 of the 13 Oregon correctional facilities. We have recruited steady and experienced volunteers, and have slowly worked to establish our sustainable gardening program for inmates. This both improves the gardens, generates food bank donations, and gives inmates a credential for job search when they are released.
Lettuce Grow brings gardening education to correctional facilities in the State of Oregon. Our volunteers and guest speakers educate inmates on sustainability gardening and horticulture topics. We provide classroom learning and hands-on experience in the garden. We encourage prisons to incorporate their harvests in their own kitchens and support donations to local food banks. We are passionate about the positive power of education and gardening!
