Prisoners get gardening

A show garden designed to illustrate the positive and negative aspects of a life behind bars is being created by inmates from HMP Hewell near Redditch for this year's Malvern Autumn Show (25-26 September).

The productive vegetable plot entitled Pathway to Progression will highlight the prisoner’s rehabilitation process.

It is one of seven edible gardens on display in the Malvern Autumn Show's Good Life Pavillion and it will be re-built at the prison after the show.

HMP Hewell learning and skills manager Alison Bramham-Smith who is employed by Manchester College has joined forces with prison farms and gardens staff, led by Jane Cale, to create the garden.

They are working together to involve prisoners and staff from across the prison.
