How healthy is Gardening?

Dig Deep: Rehabilitation Through Gardening

"They are the class participants of the Insight Garden Program (IGP) at San Quentin State Prison.
Having served over 800 prisoners over an eight-year period, the IGP rehabilitates men through the process of organic gardening. By connecting with nature, men also reconnect to themselves, their communities and the natural environment. It is based on the principles that nature can teach us everything we need to know, and that through connection to nature we can heal individually and collectively." Beth Waitkus
