A green thumb graduation ceremony was held Thursday for some inmates at Cook County Jail.

The ceremony was part of the annual "Harvest Festival," celebrating this year's haul of fruits and vegetables taken from the jail's produce farm.

Inmates received certificates showing they completed their garden training.

The program helps non-violent inmates gain job skills working on the farm.
