The dream of a sustainable prison? A sustainable farmer on the inside? Yes this is a TEDx Talk by Nick Hacherney took place at Washington’s Monroe Correctional Center about how sustainability can work behind bars and change lives. This sixteen minute talk about their worm program and how they spread the gospel of the worm to other facilities. 36 million tons of food waste is disposed of in our country and this inmate is making a huge difference. This talk is inspiring and shows that no matter where you are you can make the world a better place!

You can donate to the Sustainability in Prison Project (SPP)  here.

“Although each endeavor and corrections institution is unique, our experiences point to five

Essential Components for every SPP program:

1. Partnerships and collaborations with multiple benefits

2. Bringing nature “inside”

3. Engagement and education

4. Safe and sustainable operations
