all food must be raised, grown AND MADE (the cooking duties would be done in rounds each person would have a set date they must cook) by the prisioners if a prisioner does not work he/she does not eat (if they are sick that is a diffrent matter) there would be a gaurd per so many prisioners each gaurd will watch over a certian group (lie 10 - 15 prisioners) to ensure they are not causing harm to anyone or anything

to suport the prision as far as electricity and water THEY must raise money by making stuff and giving it to the prision to sell it. It could be sewing clothing under supervision, basket weaving, necklaces ext ext

 

No luxireis at all no tv, no magizines NOTHING the only thing not paid (edit By the inmates) is staff

I think that's a little extreme, but they should definitely have to earn their keep somehow & no luxuries for sure.

 Heck yes! Why should they get to live for free? We pay for them to live there! They should have to still work for their crap just like we do! Not get a free ride!

i think the ONLY thing we should have to pay for is the wages for the staff that is it.

Eh, it's a nice idea but kind of not fair, because if they made stuff to sell who's to say the prison could sell it? Even if it was good stuff alot of people don't have money to buy things, and some guards/staff there would be asses and not try hard enough to sell.

Plus, how would they grow their own food in winter? Idk anything about gardening but I don't know of any foods that can be grown with snow all over lol

They'd be eating better then most other people, lol.

I know of a prison outside the US that is run similar to that.
They garden (plant, grow, harvest) all there own food or stuff they need to make the food, certain people are giving the ok to do the cooking (because they have skills, and they do receive pay for that). All the food is organically grown, fresh milk is there (milk from a cow kinda fresh). They also make things, sewing, pottery, all kinds of stuff and it is sold outside the prison. They are allowed some luxuries, but not many.
From what I've heard of it, I'd like to be sent to prison there lol.
