Fairbanks Correctional Center Garden Project

Fairbanks Correctional Center inmates spent the summer growing and nurturing several raised beds full of vegetables. Recently, they were able to harvest their gardens and donate the food to Stevie’s Place which is a local non-profit that provides child advocacy services.

The inmates were given a list of non-profits and chose Stevie’s Place as the recipient of their hard work. Correctional Officer Julie Johnson spearheaded the project and did an outstanding job working alongside the inmates to produce the best crop they could despite the wet summer in Fairbanks. We look forward to expanding the garden project next year!
