ANNOTATION: This is the article to read if you are interested in setting up a greening program that not only benefits society but also trains offenders for employment in the green fields on release. The Sustainability Prison Project, a partnership between the Washington State Department of Corrections and Evergreen State College, is highlighted. The success of the project’s reduction of moss poaching for florists by growing the moss in greenhouses has supported the expanse of the program as a scientific research project. The present project is raising endangered frogs at rates much higher than other programs at Washington state zoos.
