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!
