Today I had a fantastic meeting with Laura Winig of Venturing Out, Inc.  She runs a great prison entrepreneurial program here in Boston.  It is similar to our Maintenance Collaborative in that it meets once a week for 3 months.  Her program is neat because it teaches inmates how to become entrepreneurs.  Volunteers meet with the students for 12 weeks and help them with a business plan for whatever business the person is interested in pursuing upon release.  Laura and I discussed our programs and how I am trying to get a Master Gardener accreditation for the Maintenance Collaborative.  We decided to look into doing a collaborative garden entrepreneur program.   Will keep you posted!
