Program Manager
Insight Garden Program
GARDENING FOR HEALTH IN PRISONS
FOCUS
Prisons are places of disconnect. Insight Garden Program connects prisoners in California to themselves, nature and community through an innovative curriculum that is rooted in the gardens our participants grow. By growing themselves and plants, our participants change prison culture and successfully re-integrate into their communities.

MORE ABOUT AMY
I combine caring for nature and for people’s spirits as program manager in our three Central Valley prisons, including California’s two medical prisons.
