Seeds of hope: JBLM inmates grow a new start with horticulture program

Charles Kentfield, the head of a horticulture program at the Northwest Joint Regional Correctional Facility on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., in which inmates learn some of the ins and outs of gardening and farming, donates vegetables they grew to the Thurston County Food Bank in downtown Olympia, Wash., Aug. 21. The inmates have produced more than 1,500 pounds of vegetables for the food bank since they began harvesting their gardens in June.
