ENABLE Scotland and Impact Arts
Hazeldene Horticulture aims to produce life transforming opportunities for young people and adults with learning disabilities across North Ayrshire. The foundations of the scheme are rooted in ENABLE Scotland's horticultural and employability project experience.
Hazeldene Horticulture is a sustainable and innovative plant nursery venture. It will employ 8 people with learning disabilities directly and will deliver life changing employment and training opportunities for 44 people with learning disabilities annually. The nursery will train people for the horticulture labour market where skills gaps exist and forecasts suggest that an additional 12,000 people will be needed in the next 10 years.
