A Visit to Whanganui Prison – 22 March 2015

NGINZ and interested growers will join Corrections staff at Whanganui Prison in March.  In addition to visiting the nursery site and getting a better understanding of their nursery production parameters, matters we will discuss may include:

  • Corrections training programmes, outputs and progression toward private sector employment post-release
  • Links between prisons and the local nursery community, at least in part so the latter might support Corrections employment programmes
  • Discussions on community horticulture projects associated with Whanganui Prison

Visitors need to register with Corrections in advance of the meeting.  If you’d like to join us, please let Frances Palmer know by 15 March,
