Prisoners contribute to school fair


Bury Free Press

Greener Growth, community group organised a garden fair at Howard Primary School with plants grown by prisoners from Highpoint Prison.

The garden fair was organised to raise money to create a shaded area for the early years outdoor space at the school.

Jo Metcalfe, founder of Greener Growth, said: “I was really impressed with the children.”

The fair raised around £180 by selling plants that the prisoners from Highpoint had planted with the resources provided by Greener Growth.

Ms Metcalfe said: “Quite a few people in prison aren’t academic but they’re good with their hands, this kind of work allows them to get into a landscape profession when they leave.”
