Trumbull Correctional institution has implemented various programs and activities to promote sustainability in the facility. The newest program, Aquaponics, is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The plants are fed by the cycled water and the starter plants are placed in the gardens. Food waste is composted into the garden and contributes nutrients for the worms in the Vermiculture program. These worms produce worm tea, and castings (liquid & solid fertilizer) used in the gardens and flower beds. Just this past year the garden provided 8,152 pounds of fresh produce to community food banks.
Rain water collected in barrels was used to supplement watering of the crops. The Bee program located at Trumbull Correctional Camp had produced 120 lbs. of Honey while teaching offenders the importance of bees in the food cycle. In addition to the gardening, aquaponics and the bee programs, Roots of Success, an environmental literacy program, was implemented at TCI in 2014.
The program educates participants including areas of water conservation, waste and agriculture preparing them for “green jobs”. TCI sorts institution waste for recycling and prevention of unnecessary trash being sent to the landfill. An electronic device repair program also limits the amount of electronic items entering the landfill by recycling parts and repairing them.

The participants also maintain a daily journal and participate in programming such as Victim Awareness, Moral Reasoning, and art classes.
Certified Electronics Technician Program
Certified Electronics Technician (CET) is a one year inmate led program teaching inmates the ins and outs of electronics. The class is taught by a technologically talented & certified inmate who takes pride in passing his knowledge to others. The instruction occurs in a classroom but the unique part is the experience gained by working with the electronics. The students assist in the electronic shop in the mornings. The shop offers repair services to the general population at no cost to the inmates. The program began in the year 2013 and also promotes recycling by repairing items that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. Just as important, is it teaches inmates valuable and employable skills.
The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day.
The Offender Network for Employment to STOP Recidivism (O.N.E.-STOP) is a collaboration between ODRC, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and local workforce development partners. The O.N.E.-STOP shop is located within the prison to offer reentry planning, educational workshops, and Ohio Reentry Connections resources. The institution O.N.E.-STOP shop was designed to assist offenders in seeking employment prior to release, along with training, and support services: with the goal of helping to reduce recidivism.
The New Roots program is a concept that was developed to prepare higher security level offenders for reentry into the community. This process begins 12 months prior to an offender’s release and continues throughout the remainder of their sentence. The New Roots process will include development of Transitional Skills, WorkShops, Cognitive Programming, family reintegration along with community and mentoring support. The development of transitional skills is to ease their transition from incarceration to life in the community. This part of the program consists of 9-weekly sessions that focus on a variety of topics to assist the offender and develop individual abilities.
