STEPS Nursery is a unique retail outlet that sells quality plants and gardening supplies to the public while providing a space for the community to learn, explore, and experience the joy and benefits of gardening.
For more than 15 years we have provided a place for students, volunteers, and people with a disability to build their work experience, learn new skills, socialise, and develop their ability to work as part of a team.
We also offer a space where individuals can come and simply enjoy the health and well-being benefits of gardening.
As a not for profit organisation our nursery sales go back to projects that support our commitment to make a difference by providing opportunity.
STEPS Nursery is one of several organisations which form STEPS Group Australia (www.stepsgroup.com.au) and is focused on making a difference by providing opportunity with locations all over Australia.
The Group consists of STEPS Employment Solutions, STEPS Education & Training and STEPS Social & Community.
STEPS’ humble beginnings were sparked in 1989 when a group of parents of children with disabilities felt there wasn’t enough support in place to allow their children to achieve true independence.
Like all parents, that small group of mothers and fathers wanted nothing more than to see their children grow into happy, fulfilled people ready and able to ‘take life by the horns’, so they did something about it!
United in their passion, STEPS was established, and almost 30 years on we’re still here working to empower people and create a positive impact in our communities.
