At Jordan Lake School of the Arts & Creative Center we believe in entrepreneurship and encouraging students to consider their passion when shaping their future. We assist in creating and launching business ventures that provide financial & social independence for individuals on the autism spectrum or with exceptional needs through the creation of living wage employment in arts and nature based vocations.
JLSA students are creating their own apothecary line, Heron Cove Naturals ® , and grow and dry herbs, create specific balances in ingredients to form products, and are responsible for marketing, budgeting and production. This is one of several seed business to be created and developed by students as a tool for experiential learning, but also as a means of creating job training and viable living wage opportunities for students and alumni. Daydream Believer® is a signature lily under hybridization by students at Jordan Lake School of the Arts. Continued development and work toward distribution is continuing through 2016- 2017.
