The New Garden Society is a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic and vocational horticulture training. Organized in 2013, TNGS responded to a voiced need for horticulture instructors in the Massachusetts Department of Corrections. TNGS currently provides year-round programming at two state correctional facilities. The programs feature classroom-based coursework in horticulture as well as experiential education in custom, onsite gardens and greenhouses. We're an organization run by farmers, landscapers and horticulturists who want to expand green industry opportunities for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people.
