Site Visit: The Hort Society of New York's Greenhouse Program on Rikers Island
Hands-on healing and learning through horticulture takes place at HSNY's GreenHouse program on Rikers Island. Designed and built by inmates and their instructors, the garden features a native woodland, nursery, and vegetable and herb gardens. HSNY's horticultural therapists will give an overview of the program, and then you will spend the rest of the morning with student-inmates at the GreenHouse.
Prerequisite: Introduction to Horticultural Therapy
