GreenPrisons has been partnered with the American Correctional Association (ACA) since we got our start in 2011, and we’re really excited about this upcoming Conference! The 145th Congress of Correction is in Indianapolis, IN, this year from August 14th – 19th. ACA has long since set the standard in all aspects of corrections and this year the conference has expanded the Green Aisle to a full aisle of sustainable vendors and products!
The American Jail Association (AJA) held their 34th Annual Conference & Jail Expo in April in Charlotte, NC, and GreenPrisons was there for the first time. This was also the first conference that AJA has dedicated a special area in the exhibit hall exclusively for companies that provide sustainable products and services to the corrections profession.
One of GreenPrisons’ most enduring partnerships has been making news lately. Founder, director and class facilitator Beth Waitkus began Insight Garden Program (IGP) in 2002, and has continued to grow and expand her operation....
GreenPrisons had an active October visiting jails in New York, presenting at the Construction Management Institute, and assisting in an onsite visit by representatives from CommTech Systems and EESI Global at the Marion County (KY) Detention Center.
