Sustainable Prisons Project

I found this interesting link about the sustainable initiatives that are happening in one prison.  It struck a cord with me because I have a friend who work at a local minimum security prison where he and the inmates grow food for a local non-profit.  The benefits are interesting because the inmates learn a marketable skill, the non profit gets the food and what is more, it doesn’t cost the jail anything, in fact now that they compost their food scraps they have reduced their costs because they don’t have to pay to dump 500 lbs of food waste a day!
