Urban GreenWorks is producing a film about the impact of horticulture on women coming out of prison.
"Green is the new Orange" shows how women coming out of prison and dealing with recovery transform neglected lots while transforming themselves.

Students working at the Northwestern High School Food Justice Garden
Cerasee Farm, built on a neglected lot in Liberty City serves as a fresh food resource and training site for residents in a USDA "food desert".
Enjoying the fruits of one's labor: young men putting in that work at Cerasee Farm rather than out on the streets.
Our Living Garden Program in South Florida Reception Center Prison
Food for Thought Garden at Northwestern High School
Mustard Seed Program
Women released from prison with issues of substance abuse learn to build and manage food security gardens and urban farms in low-income neighborhoods. Our Mother Farm - called Cerasee provides fresh produce and urban farming resources to residents in Liberty City - a USDA "food desert".
Cerasee Farm is an urban farm in Liberty City that provides food, training and resources to City residents. It is staff by women from our Mustard Seed project.
It is named after Cerasee, a tropical vine that appears wherever land is disturbed.
We call it Cerasee Farm as an antidote to the ills plaguing poor land use and poor health in Miami's inner-city.
Food for Thought
An outdoor Labratory consisting of aquaponics tanks, food forest, food beds and native plant and butterfly gardens is established and maintained at Northwestern High School for students to learn and explore food and environmental justice issues in an urban food desert. Students are hired through internships to maintain and expand the garden and canopy. The program supports outdoor science learning centers at elementary and middle schools that feed into Northwestern so environmental learning is reinforced as students graduate from school to school.
A Food Forest in Soars Park provides food for the community by working with children through the Little Haiti Optimist Club.
Hammocks in Da Hood
Planting trees in inner-city neighborhoods to raise the canopy for environmental and community health benefits, while developing neglected open space as habitat for native plants and wildlife.
