Orange

As “Orange is the New Black” sweeps Netflix, I stumbled on Lindsay Morris’ “The Hort at Rikers.” Think we’ll see some gardening on season 2…?

GreenHouse, a project of the Horticultural Society of New York, is a classroom, 2.5 acres of landscaped gardens, and a greenhouse designed and built by inmates at Rikers to reduce recidivism rates through horticultural therapy. I always knew plants were magic.

Check out Doing Time in the Garden to learn more.
