This 19 minute video reveals the wonderfully inspiring story of men released from San Quentin State Prison who aren’t going back. And why they’re happier and more fulfilled on the outside.

An amazing program called Planting Justice, in association with Insight Garden Program and Pathways 2 Resilience has found a way to do the impossible: helping habitual offenders turn their lives around learning to be horticulturists and contributors to their local communities.
