257 N Greenwood St, Houston, Texas 77011
NOTE: Houston's climate is subtropical and operates on a distinct growing cycle. Our season begins in September and runs through June.
Located just 3.5 miles east of downtown in the historic 2nd Ward, Finca Tres Robles is the only privately-operated farm in Houston’s urban core and grows seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs on 1.5 acres. Using intensive growing methods and following organic practices, Finca is one of the only sources of sustainable, fresh, and local produce on Houston’s East Side.
Being a community-driven farm and uniquely striving to keep 100% of its produce within 3 miles of our farm, we have developed community outlets and relationships selling our produce through a 10 month CSA, year round farmers market and on site farm stand as well as a small amount of wholesale. We strive to take a creative and innovative approach to agriculture and work to foster a space to push the interests and long-term goals of young farmers, land access to farmers, and food accessibility in our city. We believe being located in the city is vital to impact and grow the agricultural movement in Houston and hence are open to the public 5 days a week. Further, we offer other programming including hands on classes, field trips, farm dinners, free community events, as well as renting the farm out for private gatherings.
Qualifications and Skills:
$9-$11/hr depending on experience + Farm Produce. Potential for growth opportunities beyond 12 months
