Benny says: “prisoners in prison just tell it how it is…”

She’s teaching me the seasons, she’s trying to teach me a whole year’s cycle so that if I wanted to have a job doing it, I’d know how to do it from start to … More Benny says: “prisoners in prison just tell it how it is…”

Peter says: “So, I think ending up in jail… it done me a favour, really…”

It wasn’t until I was doing some groups in jail and this is pretty much my only real jail sentence… I was doing a group, we used to do a group every two-weeks together, like a ‘smart’ group and it wasn’t until we were picking holes in my sort of life, that I realised the … More Peter says: “So, I think ending up in jail… it done me a favour, really…”

Brett says: “it’s been the best time of my life really because I’ve finally managed to get clean after all those years of trying…”

Compared to when I first came here, if anyone said that to me then, I’d be like … More Brett says: “it’s been the best time of my life really because I’ve finally managed to get clean after all those years of trying…”

Joe says: “this is more about rehabilitation and getting your head sorted, than kind of digging away at a roadside…”

This is my first official day, because I’m in full time work, I’m sort of fitting it in as I can, ‘cos I’ve only got so many hours, so Chris and my probation officer said, you know just fill it in when you can… I’ve done some cooking, some weeding and some washing up, I’ve … More Joe says: “this is more about rehabilitation and getting your head sorted, than kind of digging away at a roadside…”

Benny says: “I always say to them, look if you’ve got the choice, you know you don’t go”

I’ve met some very interesting people who volunteer to come and cook, and that’s been my highlight really so far, because I like people, I like to pick people’s brains and things, and I like to listen to people’s lives, and I’ve met some interesting guys and girls that are on community service here, doing … More Benny says: “I always say to them, look if you’ve got the choice, you know you don’t go”

Rachel says: “You need to give people the opportunity to improve their lives and to live”

I am a police officer, you get sworn in on Friday of the first week, so it’s all done and dusted, I’m working towards a diploma in policing, which is a two year overall thing and as part of that you have to do 80 hours in the community, so this week at LandWorks comes … More Rachel says: “You need to give people the opportunity to improve their lives and to live”

Sandy says: “it wouldn’t be worth me trying to change my life, to just hang around with the same people…”

“I’ve recently moved down here… I know a couple of people, but I don’t go and see them and that, I’ve met them once and I feel they’re like the exact same mates as I’ve got in [the old place], pretty pointless, it wouldn’t be worth me trying to change my life to just hang … More Sandy says: “it wouldn’t be worth me trying to change my life, to just hang around with the same people…”

Brett says: “I’m proud of myself…I’ve turned myself round for my boys”

  “I’ve just been doing stuff in the ‘good garden’ really… the good garden is sort of my next little project I suppose, because it’s the area where transformation man is in situ… ‘cos the area where I’ve put transformation man was basically just a load of rough ground, and it’s supposed to actually be … More Brett says: “I’m proud of myself…I’ve turned myself round for my boys”
