Erie County Youth Detention Center is one of the three pilot sites selected for the installation of a therapeutic garden through the Garman Family Foundation Grant. Erie County Youth Detention Center started off as a produce garden in the community garden network in      . In collaboration with the staff at ECYDC, Grassroots Gardens WNY decided the installation of an additional therapeutic garden would provide benefits for residents and their families and the staff at ECYDC.
