Fair Street Nursery Now Open on Park Avenue in Chico

Why is Fair Street Nursery on Park Avenue?

We Started at the Work Training Center

Fair Street Nursery started in 2010 as an extension of Prestige Landscape Services (PLS), a program providing employment for persons with developmental disabilities at the Work Training Center (WTC).  At the time, PLS was located on Fair Street in Chico, CA.  When the Work Training Center sold its property on Fair Street in 2020 to the Jesus Center, the nursery was moved to new offices on Park Avenue. We are currently co-located there with our sister businesses Fair Street Landscaping and Fair Street Janitorial Services. We've kept our "Fair Street" name to honor who we are, where we came from, and our ongoing mission to support persons with developmental disabilities.

Prestige Nursery becomes Fair Street Nursery

Prestige Nursery was created to grow starter plants to support the garden fill-in, replacement planting, and installation needs of Prestige Landscape Services.

From a small initial greenhouse, the business expanded to include a second, much larger, greenhouse, and a retail sales program.  Further, Prestige Nursery served as a work experience program for clients of the Work Training Program, with several individuals graduating to other commercial nurseries in Butte County.

When federal policies moved away from specialized work programs for individuals with developmental disabilities, Prestige Nursery reinvented itself as a full commercial enterprise operating under the name Fair Street Nursery.

Fair Street Nursery is a business arm of the Work Training Center that:

  • Sells plants and heirloom vegetable starters to the public,
  • Supports the horticultural needs of Fair Street Landscape Services,
  • Prioritizes employing individuals with developmental disabilities, and
  • Contributes 100% of its profits to support the mission of the Work Training Center.
