Hope Association / Briar Patch Greenhouse

Agritourism Nursery/Greenhouse

The Hope Association provides services and supports to individuals with disabilities in Oxford, Franklin and Androscoggin Counties in Maine. We provide residential homes, supported living, shared living, Rural Employment Services, Brain Injury and a variety of services that allow people with disabilities to live and work within the communities of their choice.
The Briar Patch Greenhouse provides horticultural and vocational supports to people with disabilities to teach skills that will foster greater employment opportunities in local communities. The Briar Patch grows flowers, vegetables, house plants, funeral pillows and a variety of plants that are hardy to the Maine growing climate. The Briar Patch will also develop seasonal outdoor gardens that will provide foods for local farm markets.
A new commercial Briar Patch Greenhouse has been built and is located at 82 Highland Terrace in Mexico, Maine across the street from the Mexico Middle School. To learn more about the Hope Association, the Briar Patch Greenhouse and all of our programs, look for us on Facebook or at
