Why Work @ Avalow?
We believe that everyone should grow their own food. The best tasting, most nutritious produce comes from your own yard.
Our goal is to introduce everyone to the benefits of freshness, starting with our employees. Each full-time employee receives one of our proprietary raised beds in order to experience growing first-hand. We also believe in on-going education and regularly work with our team to develop cooking skills, new recipes and taste test the fresh produce coming from our show garden.
Every day there are new challenges, and opportunities to learn new skills as our business grows. We love solving problems while making the world a little better. Come talk to us if you do too!
We provide a quarterly stipend for books & research materials to enhance personal growth. We also encourage all of our employees, regardless of role, to spend time in the gardens. Research shows that spending time with plants changes your brainwaves and makes you happier!
We provide competitive salaries and make sure that our employees have room for advancement as they continue to develop. We want to create a place where the team can grow and stay with us for a long time to come.
We give our clients the option to donate a percentage of their produce to local food charities and we also donate produce from our show garden. Additionally, our Avalow For Good program uses client referrals to install fully-managed gardens for people in need.
We are not hiring for a specific position at this moment. Message us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss future positions that will become open.
