Commercial Gardens

Beautify your landscape while improving employee wellness. Imagine the area around your business as a lush green space for learning and enjoyment. We transform your existing landscape into edible gardens, where employees can learn to grow healthy, organic food. Our staff will maintain your gardens, helping plants grow to their full potential and keeping the garden clean and green. Business employees can participate in the growing or just access the fresh harvest via a weekly food share (paid for by employees or subsidized by the business).

Employee Garden Workshops

Productive employees are happy and healthy. The River School Farm’s experienced growers will lead your employees in gardening workshops to learn a few new tricks while enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. Contact us to improve the wellness of mind, spirit and body and get your hands dirty!

Current Projects

Patagonia Outlet, Reno

The River School Farm, Interpretive Gardens Inc., manages the landscape around the Patagonia Outlet. Besides draught-tolerant shrubs and grasses located around the entire property, the River School Farm and Landscape Staff also maintains a quarter acre vegetable garden for employee use and Patagonia’s own Employer Supported Agriculture (ESA). The garden has brought green life, bountiful fruit trees and a few productive beehives to the landscape. It provides workers the opportunity to flex their green thumbs, and supports a local organic farm with space to grow fresh produce. The garden veggies, fruits and honey are available to Patagonia employees interested in improving their health and participating in the ESA program.
