VRDNT Is Hiring!!
We are succeeding in our mission to feed our local community and need to expand our team to help pick, pack, market, and sell the abundance of vegetables we are growing. :-)
VRDNT Farm is a bio-intensive vegetable farm in Bastrop TX (45min E of Austin) We believe relocalizing agriculture is a radical step towards improving our individual health and community resilience. VRDNT’s mission is simple: to nourish the land and our local community by growing high quality, nutrient dense, super-fresh veggies. Owner Becky Hume spent over 10 years working on Organic and sustainable farms before taking the leap to start her own in 2019 (that’s me!). We operate a year-round CSA (subscription) program as well as selling at Farmer’s Markets and to local wholesalers. In our fourth year, we are hitting our stride and continuing to expand our production and products. We’re looking for folks to join our team, who share a passion for growing food, and a willingness to work hard as a team.

We need more content for our social media accounts.

Pretty open on what that might look like. Pitch me something! firstname.lastname@example.org
