Corrections

Growing Second Chances

Corrections Programs

Developing career and life skills is a critical component of corrections. Aquaponics provides a vehicle for hands-on learning in business, STEM, health, sustainability, and soft skills. We partner with correctional institutions to develop Aquaponics Labs and implement an Aquaponics and Greenhouse training program for staff and incarcerated persons.
Programs and Aquaponics Labs are designed to meet the desired outcomes of the institution such as:
Enhance engagement from staff and incarcerated individuals
Implement an Aquaponics and Greenhouse Certificate program
Improve the nutritional quality of the food at the facility
Grow fresh food for the surrounding community
Introduce incarcerated persons to employers who tour the Aquaponics Lab
Bring a positive program to the facility that garners support from the public
We partner with both juvenile and adult correctional facilities. Contact us to schedule an introductory call or site visit. In the meantime, learn about our partnership with Berkshire Education and Correctional Services where the program produces 3,000 servings of leafy vegetables weekly and 4,000 pounds of fish annually.

Funding

K-8 partnerships have an annual cost of between $12k - $19k not including the cost of the Aquaponics Lab. The standard Aquaponics Lab for K-8 schools costs between $8k - $10k depending on location and any site work that is required before installation.
