Every morning a group of men and women recently released from jail gather around the GreenTeam truck to make their rounds, plant trees and beautify New York City. The program, run by The Horticultural Society of New York, pays the participants an hourly wage, teaches them how to garden and fosters a community to help them adjust to life on the outside.
