We are a Certified Living Wage Employer!
Part of our mission is promoting a sustainable local food system and we believe that in order for food to be sustainable the workers who grow, harvest, distribute, serve, and promote that local food need to be paid a sustainable wage. And that includes our Garden Project employees!
We are excited to be part of the group of local employers working towards the vision of a thriving community through just wages.
If you want to support this vision of a sustainable local food system and the thriving community that comes with it you can spend your money at local businesses like Zia, Eolus and the Ore House, who are building a sustainable local food system by buying from local producers AND who are Certified Living Wage Employers like us! You can also make a donation to The Garden Project!
