New greenhouse added to New Mexico detention facility

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Construction began Wednesday on a second greenhouse at the county’s juvenile detention facility.

In 2014, La Cocina Verde was created within the secure perimeter of the facility to teach students how to farm.

A second greenhouse called “Hoop Garden” has since been created outside the secure perimeter to allow students to continue farming after release from the facility.
