A Walk Through The Way We Work

Farmers kick off the day with a team meeting to discuss order fulfillments and to plan the day’s tasks. Farmers are assigned to teams for: harvesting, packaging, and seeding.

The harvest team is responsible for getting fresh product to the packaging team or storing product in cold storage for the next day’s packaging needs. Food safety is a top priority during this phase.

Freshly harvested products are moved into a cooler area where our food safe farmers are ready to clean, weigh and package products for order fulfillment and distribution.

After harvesting has been completed, the team quickly moves into cleaning—removing remaining plant matter and exchanging filtered water for the next batch of plants to grow.

Once the growing containers are cleaned, the team takes young plants from propagation areas and replants them in the NFT systems.

Farmers follow a seeding schedule to make sure they are growing the right products to fulfill upcoming orders. Seeding takes place in propagation areas. It takes 14 trays to fill one growing container.

When the day’s tasks are complete and the last batch of cleaning, sanitation and prep for the next day’s work is ready—it’s time to lock-up and head home.

I applied at Vertical Roots because I wanted to work with emerging technologies that can change the way our communities see food. Coming from a conventional agricultural background, I was intrigued by the idea of growing health food better, faster, and more sustainably.

Supervisor Beth portrait

As a farmer the most beneficial skill I learned was the physicality. I enjoy working hard. I like to know at the end of the day that I have worked a full day, and am proud of what I’ve accomplished.

Farmer to Farm Supervisor

Vertical Roots Grower Max

The most beneficial skills I have learned would be gaining a general knowledge of hydroponic farming as well as plant development. Prior to this job I did not have much experience beyond minor greenhouse work. I have had to learn something everyday, as a farmer and a grower to produce the best lettuce possible.

HR specialist Sophia

The most challenging part is being able to keep up with how quickly we are growing. But it has given me beneficial leadership and communication skills. The ability to quickly problem solve. My perspective has changed from “having problems” to “presenting solutions”.
