CONCORD, NH – It’s planting season in New Hampshire, and a good plant sale is always welcome. Inmates from the New Hampshire Department of Corrections have cultivated an impressive array of plants to be sold May 18 – 21 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from the NH State Prison Farm, 314 North State St. in Concord.

The Correctional Industries program is one of several vocational and industrial programs available to incarcerated inmates.  Plants for sale range from vegetables and annuals to herbs and perennials. They also produce cord wood, campfire wood, hay bales, and picnic tables. A complete list of plants is available here.

The plants will be on display in the greenhouse behind the Correctional Industries showroom.  Personal checks, Visa and Master Card will be accepted for purchase (no cash).

New Hampshire Correctional Industries, New Hampshire’s prison industry, creates revenue-generating work environments that provide inmates with the work experience, job skills, and the confident attitude they will need in order to obtain and hold jobs once released. Products from all shops are offered for sale to both businesses and individuals located in New Hampshire. You can contact the individual shops for product and service offerings as well as price quotes via email: industries.staff@nhdoc.state.nh.us
