Cultivating Dreams oversees an organic garden inside the California Institution for Women (CIW). The fruits and vegetables grown in the garden are used in the prison’s kitchen, providing the women inside with healthy food as well as an education in gardening, nutrition, and environmentalism. The organization connects communities by uniting women with different life experiences, breaking down social boundaries, and bringing together individuals who would have otherwise never met. It is our hope that the garden will create a therapeutic and restorative space within the prison.
