GROW Glen Eira: an all-abilities horticulture training program

GROW Glen Eira is an exciting and innovative all-abilities horticulture training program for young people aged 15 to 35 with a disability or mental health concerns.

The program forms part of Council’s A Community for All-Abilities Program, which seeks to create stronger social, employment and support networks for people with a disability.

Kevin Heinze Grow, a leading provider of horticulture training for young people with a disability, is delivering the program. The team has extensive experience in identifying pathways to employment and meaningful engagement for participants.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said as part of the program, four participants are currently completing their paid work placements at Council’s Park Service in Caulfield Park, Rippon Lea Estate Gardens in Elsternwick and Kevin Heinze Grow’s nurseries.

“Participants have been developing their skills in plant care, garden maintenance and customer service,” she said.

There are still spaces available in the program. To find out if this is the employment pathway for you, Kevin Heinze Grow will be hosting an online information session via Zoom on Tuesday 21 September from 7pm to 8pm.

To RSVP for the session, email info@kevinheinzegrow.org.au
