We The People Opportunity Farm in Ypsilanti, Michigan, hires formerly incarcerated people to give them an opportunity to rebuild their lives. Their mission is to break the cycle of incarceration in Washtenaw County by investing in the employment and development of formerly incarcerated men and women through farming and community engagement.
The farm offers a paid internship program that is designed for returning citizens. The participants get involved in activities such as prepping, planting, nurturing the soil, harvesting the crop, and then delivery of produce to local restaurants. However, for additional help, they also get to take part in career building workshops, financial literacy coaching, home rehabilitation, and field trips.
