Public Garden, Employment and Technology Group
LIVE. WORK. PURPOSE.
That is Autism Power's ethos, and it is the guiding spirit behind our flagship project: NOURISH Public Garden.
INNOVATIVE JOB PLATFORM
NOURISH is a new type of job engine, providing training and employment for non-traditional workers. Individuals who are marginalized from the workforce. These are not low-level or make-work jobs. Rather, they are rewarding, challenging, and enjoyable jobs that take advantage of each worker's strengths. This is accomplished through technology-supported vocational training and individualized assessments. Opportunities also include linking individuals to integrated and competitive employment.
CONTROLLED AGRICULTURE ENVIRONMENT
NOURISH includes a controlled agriculture environment setting growing and selling produce.
COMMUNITY GATHERING PLACE
NOURISH is intended to be a welcoming place for everybody, neurotypical and neurodiverse alike...
RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY
The key is NOURISH's integrated technology, which combines proprietary cloud-based process management software and smart-screen kiosks to provide whatever level of individualized support each worker needs to succeed.
