IDEP Foundation and the Bangli State Prison in Bali is teaching prison inmates the importance of a sustainable culture by building organic permaculture sites at their correction facility.

This pioneer unique rehabilitative program in South East Asia teaches the inmates values of sustainability, teamwork, organizational skills, recycling, resource management, environmental awareness and nutrition. Since the beginning of this program in June 2010, over 74 inmates have been educated and have contributed into building and organizing a 170 m2 Permaculture site that grows 15 kinds of organic vegetables. All produce grown in their site is used to feed the prison inmates themselves. 

So far, the program has been greatly successful and requires continuous support to make more of this happen.
