Mayfield Nursery is a mental health project offering a supported working environment to people living in the Southampton. We are located close to Southampton city centre within the walls of Mayfield Park. We are a subsidiary charity of Solent Mind, the leading mental health charity across Hampshire.
We are a working nursery open to the public for the sale of high quality plants, shrubs and consumables. Through these sales, we provide a place for people with mental health problems and learning disabilities to attend the nursery and develop skills and confidence to gain employment, volunteer, or make positive steps towards improving their mental health.
Around 50 members with severe and enduring mental health problems attend the nursery and assist in all the jobs which need to be done to keep us up and running. Mayfield is fast becoming a thriving nursery.
As well as general nursery work, members can take part in woodwork, grounds maintenance work, outside sales and dealing with customers. Members benefit from undertaking meaningful activity in relaxed, supportive surroundings. Attendance offers them the opportunity to develop social contacts, improve or develop horticultural skills and experience a work - orientated environment.
Whether you are looking for a friendly working nursery to buy your garden or commercial plants from, advice and practical learning on horticultural techniques, or information about any of the services that they offer, Mayfield Nurseries’ friendly staff and volunteers will be able to help you whatever your query.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8.30am until 4pm, Saturdays (April-June only) 10am until 4pm. Closed on Bank Holidays.
