Horticultural program at the Davidson County (TN) Jail
We visit the Correctional Development Center at the Davidson County (TN) jail to see the Sheriff’s horticulture program for ourselves. This program teaches offenders valuable job skills, while it encourages healthy eating. The trees grown and vegetables harvested are distributed to the community free of charge with the help of non-profit organizations.
