Gardening Program at Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution (BWCI)

Working with volunteers from the The Garden Club of Wilmington, we take our classes inside the prison walls. Volunteers and staff organize horticulture classes and gardening activities at BWCI, inspiring participants towards green and healthy futures.

Delaware's only green jobs training programs for unemployed, underemployed, and previously incarcerated men and women. 
An impressive 84% of expenses go directly to TheDCH programs in the community. Our relatively low-cost investment in labor and materials results in dramatic, on-the-ground returns.
DCH isn’t just knowledge about plants – it’s about strengthening our green footprint, making beautiful green public spaces, helping members with their gardening skills...
