The Green Life peer education self-sufficiency and eco-literacy program teaches incarcerated individuals and those reentering community the importance of a healthy relationship with the Earth.

Past and potentially future activities include teaching permaculture principles, life skills, and emotional readiness to inmates inside San Quentin prison. Current activities include working with re-entry (post release) programs to design a permaculture-based training program along with partners for job readiness and restorative healing.
