Authors: Jay S. Rice and Linda L. Remy
Year of Publication: 1998
Country of Study: USA

The authors of this study identified a lack of statistical evaluations of horticulture programs in the scholarly literature. Thus, the objective of this study was to provide an empirical evaluation of a horticulture therapy program in an inner-city jail. It specifically focused on the psychosocial functioning of jail inmates in a correctional facility operated by the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. The key issue was whether access to gardening in correctional facilities has positive effects.
