Cut Price Plants From Guys Marsh Prison’s New Farm Shop

Want to buy garden plants at half the price of a garden centre? Alfred visits the new Guys Marsh Prison farm shop.

It’s a prisoner rehabilitation project run by the charity that manages the Jailhouse Café. Chef and manager of the café, Georgina Waldron, takes us on a tour.

Last Wednesday, the High Sheriff of Dorset and civic dignitaries including Shaftesbury’s mayor, Cllr Andy Hollingshead, attended the farm shop’s official opening. Andy was impressed, particularly with some of the craft items on sale.

Listen to hear what’s on offer and how one prisoner believes the project is so important, he’s going to return as a volunteer when his sentence ends in a few weeks.
