Providence Greenhouses

Providence Greenhouses provides vocational training and employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a working nursery. Our Greenhouses team members are continuously gaining in-depth knowledge of horticulture and commercial nursery practices, and they are building the professional skills for community employment. Not only are they learning how to grow and sustain beautiful plants native to Maryland, they are also gaining job skills they can use to achieve greater independence.

Environmental Restoration in the Chesapeake Bay Region

Our Greenhouses team is contributing to our community through important environmental restoration projects, including the rebuilding of Poplar Island in the Chesapeake Bay. By participating in our horticulture program, people at Providence are making the environment a greener, happier place.

Providence Greenhouses has worked with a number of prestigious organizations and companies in Maryland to meet their larger-scale commercial growing needs, including the Army Corps of Engineers, Dominion Energy, Anne Arundel Community College, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and Maryland Therapeutic Riding. These meaningful partnerships are vital for Providence’s continued growth.
