Welcome! We are glad that you are interested in learning more about us. We are a 501(C)(3) non profit that operates a Day Training program for Adults with Developmental Disabilities. We rely on plant sales from our plant nursery, donations, tuition fees, and fundraisers to support our vital program.

We are not a Federally funded Med Waiver facility, we are private pay.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Day Training program for adults with disabilities was suspended through the end of May.

We are excited to welcome our students back on Monday, June 1st.

To ensure the safety of our staff and customers, our Plant Nursery is open on a limited basis by appointments or drive-ups. We keep the gate closed and only allow one set of clients per salesperson so if you do not have an appointment there may be a wait. Please call us at 863-956-1620 to set up a time for one on one shopping Tuesday – Saturday from 9:00 – 5:00. We ask that you kindly wear a mask, or maintain a safe distance of 6 feet, and only touch the pots of plants that you intend to purchase.

For any questions or concerns, you may contact Executive Director Linda West @ linda@polktrainingcenter.org

Delivery for large orders is an option as well. We also can special order most plants that are available for zone 9.

Prior to COVID-19, and once we have the “all clear,” our retail plant nursery is open to the public TUESDAY THRU FRIDAY from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, and the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 8:30 – 12:30. In 2020 we decided to remain open EVERY SATURDAY during the months of February, March and April from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm.

EXCEPTIONS to our hours are national holidays, or states of emergency, or during hurricane watches and warnings.

Call our office to see if your loved one with disabilities qualifies for our program.
