The work Greener Growth does with prisons and their residents is invaluable as it gives focus and purpose somewhere it is easy to lose sight of the natural world in. We work with ex-offenders, teaching them to grow food for themselves and their peers, as well as important life skills that can help them look forward to brighter and greener futures.
We work closely with the prison organisation, catering our services to both the facility's and the residents’ needs. Greener Growth has a ‘recover through nature’ philosophy that it uses to help residents with their personal and emotional wellbeing through tending to nature.
Greener Growth’s work with prisons is impactful while the project is running, but the effects last much longer than that - as residents learn and develop, there will always be a place for nature.
