Benefits for the community
Landmate projects have provided benefits such as:
- revegetation and pest removal from sensitive environmental areas such as the Winton Wetlands
- improvements to water catchment areas to help improve water quality and land productivity
- clean up and maintenance of community spaces such as parks and cemeteries
- promotion of biodiversity and the protection of endangered species.
Benefits for Landmate prisoner crew members
Prisoner crew members are carefully screened to make sure they are suitable to participate in the Landmate environment program. They receive training to develop valuable skills and have the opportunity to contribute to the community as they serve their sentences.
Working on projects that provide meaningful and tangible benefits to the environment contributes to crew members’ rehabilitation efforts, helps to foster pride and assists them in developing a more positive, community-minded mindset.
