    I have been working at Urban Plantations part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is nothing like the feeling of your personal interests and passions coinciding with the goals and vision of the company you work for. I am surrounded by like-minded individuals who care about the world around them, and am supported by the owners of Urban Plantations who invest in us and the good work we do daily. It is my job to educate the public on the importance of growing our food locally using organic and regenerative methods, and to work outside in the sunshine with my hands in the soil. I still cannot believe that I get paid to do the work I would be doing in my free time anyway. Great culture, great cause, I hope this is my forever home!

    Cons

    Our North Park location is so great that it makes me at times regret my move to East County - but I had to move so that I could start my own home farm! ;)

    Advice to Management

    Never lose the vision and the feeling that is present in this company right now, no matter what heights are reached and goals are achieved. Always continue to look back at this time as a reminder of the culture that you have recently cultivated at Urban Plantations as the new owners, and know that what you've created is truly the "secret sauce" that differentiates you from the rest.
