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.

To ensure the safety of our staff and customers, our Plant Nursery is open 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 – Friday from 9:00 – 5:00 and Saturdays 8:30am – 1:30pm.

We wear a mask, and you may wear one if you prefer – if you would rather not wear a face covering, we REQUIRE that you maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet, and only touch the pots of plants that you intend to purchase. Thank you for understanding!

Our retail plant nursery is open to the public year round. We carry a wide variety of Florida Friendly plants. Our hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, and every Saturday from 8:30 am until 1:30 pm. You may schedule a pickup on Mondays but we are not open for regular plant shopping because it is an admin day. In the Spring and Fall we may adjust our Saturday hours to longer days as we get busier.

We are excited to welcome our students back on Monday, June 1st. Our Program for Adults with Disabilities has resumed and we are accepting new students into the “Plant Nursery Experience” Class. Call 863-956-1620 for more details.

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.

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.
