South Carolina Inmates participate in Certified Landscape Program

February 13, 2023

York County Urban Horticulture Agent, Paul Thompson, taught soon-to-be-released inmates to earn the South Carolina Certified Landscape Professional designation.

31 out of the 36 inmates completing the class passed the final exam, allowing these individuals to find gainful employment within the green industry.

Spartanburg Horticulture Agent Drew Jeffers and Paul were invited to present this project to the Southern Region American Society for Horticultural Science conference in Kansas City, Kansas on February 4, 2023.
