The horticulture and well-being hub will be open for anyone interested in learning more about what Stepping Stones NI’s new social enterprise has to offer.

Navigation House will provide activities and courses for people with learning disabilities so that they can develop new skills in horticulture and personal development while also benefiting their mental health and wellbeing.  The initiative will also be open to the public with an exciting range of horticultural and wellbeing courses and workshops launching at the end of April 2023.

Horticulture & Well-being Lead, Ann McCarron comments on the open evening “We are very excited to open up our doors to the community so that they can see what we have done to develop the site and learn about what is on offer for people with learning disabilities and the wider community.  Navigation House is a historic and tranquil site, we are privileged to work at such a beautiful place and we can’t wait to get more people through our door”.

The site has been beautifully and respectfully renovated with a great outdoor space boasting a new polytunnel and raised beds designed to suit the needs of people with disabilities.  The open training space will host workshops and courses and and there are also meeting rooms available to rent.
