SEEDS OF CHANGE is an environmental and workforce development program at the Howard County Department of Corrections. In 2016, EcoWorks established an on-site native plant nursery operation where inmates learn about nursery operation and plant propagation.

The plants are used in EcoWorks' environmental restoration projects around the County. The hands-on component is complemented by a sustainable landscaping curriculum. In 2018, 16 inmates graduated from the program with certificates. This low-cost, high return on investment program develops job skills and helps reduce recidivism.
