OUTSiDE TiME interweaves a childhood spent on prison farms with detailed research into prison farming and growing. From the origins of prison farming on Dartmoor in 1852 through to the present, Hannah traces the rise, fall and tentative revival of farming and gardening within the prison service. She finds that prison farmers have become as rare as the native livestock breeds they once championed.
Looking after animals was therapeutic, with even the most hardened criminals learning to care for themselves and others. Until twenty years ago, prisoners ate homegrown produce every day. Self-sufficiency is healthy, rehabilitative and cost-effective. Serving time outside is time well spent.
Where there is life there is hope. Against the odds, prisoners growing their own food is taking root again.
