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 land fill.  An electronic device repair program aslo limits the amount of electronic items entering the land fill by recycling parts and repairing them.
