Personally signed by Monty

In 2005, Monty Don set up a smallholding where a group of prolific offenders – mainly drug addicts – would work on the land with the objective of helping people in adversity through working the soil. Written with the skill and honesty that characterises all his work, The Monty Project is a powerful account of the day-to-day trials and tribulations. The vast complexities of the offenders’ life of addiction is a poignant example of the huge issues surrounding life in rural Britain. The project was an extraordinary journey during which he had to confront issues he had never encountered, while exercising all his traditional skills as a plantsman. For Monty the project has become a personal commitment to the struggling communities lying hidden within the countryside. For the young people we get to know through Monty’s vivid diary, it was salvation – literally, the difference between life and death.
