Why should you work at Riverbend Gardens?
Our work is fun, meaningful and rewarding! We love what we do and working with our team. We don’t just grow vegetables here, we grow experiences and values. We work hard, and our customers thank us for it.
We work outside!We watch miracles happen everyday. We love the outdoors and love working with people who were created to be outside. We are surrounded by beauty and the fresh smells of fresh vegetables. We watch the fields grow and change every day (and we get tans). Farm work is very physical and we require that our employees be in good health and willing to get their hands dirty.
We work together!Together we use our strengths to make our work a success. Some of our staff only work in the field, some only work at market and some do both. We love finding people who are passionate about what they do and helping them thrive in a position that they love.
We have a variety of work!Every week there is a new veggie to pick and sell and new things to learn. Our work is not always easy but getting to pick, wash and sell the veggies means you get to see the whole process from the field to the customer! We also love working at Farmers’ Markets. We go to 7 per week during our peak season (May – Oct).
You can learn Spanish!During our busy season, we have 4 Mexican men who live and work on the farm. They have been part of the Riverbend family for almost a decade and we love having them here.
Our farm is not located on a bus route, you must have your own transportation to get here.
Staff wages are $12.20/hr.
