Growing Works promises to be a project Ventura County will be proud to support

Turning Point’s staff will provide satisfying vocational experience to an underserved population struggling with mental illness. At the Growing Works program our Peer Support teams will assist people who are on the road to mental wellness learn skills that will help in their progress with job-training, employment, and horticultural therapy at a non-profit wholesale plant nursery.

Two acres of demonstration gardens along Lewis Road will showcase a 100 year oak in the center of a labyrinth, and a butterfly garden that the employees will learn to maintain. Four acres in the back will be a wholesale nursery where employees will be trained in all aspects of the nursery business, from propagation to shipping and receiving and data entry.
