Jerome Gardens

​Jerome Gardens presents the opportunity for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to learn work skills in a retail greenhouse setting. Workers care for plants: learning skills such as watering and transplanting houseplants, working outside in the vegetable gardens or flowerbeds and keeping a shop neat and clean. Jerome Gardens is open for business from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm weekdays enabling the worker to also learn appropriate customer relations. Besides being exposed to horticultural skills, workers in the Jerome Gardens greenhouse are able to learn general work skills that will transfer to jobs in other fields opening up the opportunity for the individual to work in the competitive community.

Open Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 4:00pm

Aquaponics System

Jerome Gardens is also home to a fully functioning aquaponics system (pictured here). The aquaponics system was installed in the Spring of 2016. Our individuals enjoy caring for the fish and the plants that are grown with the assistance of this system. The products grown are eventually going to be used on our restaurant and sold to the public.
