Growing people and plants

What one of our Participants has to say

What one of our Participants has to say:

I have worked as a Participant at Solstice Nurseries for four years since January 2018.  Solstice is a social enterprise with a NHS Mental Health background and has really brought me forward in terms of my confidence also with stability, team work, communication, work skills and meeting new people.

Daily tasks mainly consist of potting, weeding and propagating plants which can be quite therapeutic as well as providing consistency for workers.   We also focus on organisation skills where we apply a real structure to the nursery. 

It is the desire of Participants and staff to treat our work the same way you would do a fulltime job, harnessing attributes such as punctuality, attendance, discipline and handling tasks that come our way.

In the time that I’ve been here we have attained college qualifications in manual handling, first aid and health & safety giving us all a bit more variety and attainment in terms of looking at future employability or continued success with Solstice Nurseries.
