Often referred to as “America’s Salad Bowl,” the Salinas Valley is responsible for over 70% of the country’s lettuce crop. From the 1950s through the 1980s, the valley was also known as the leading producer of ornamental flowers until its farms fell victim to globalization. The farms were unable to compete with imported flowers from South America where labor costs are lower and environmental laws more lenient. Soon nearly every greenhouse in Salinas was shuttered and thousands of jobs were lost. Today, a new breed of flower is flourishing in the Salinas Valley, and it’s revitalizing the farms and the economy. With reforms to state law, Harborside is bringing vacant greenhouses to life while creating full-time jobs for the agricultural workers who call Monterey County home. On 47 acres of prime Salinas soil, Harborside is busy refurbishing five existing greenhouses and installing four new state-of-the-art Venlo glass greenhouses. Upon their completion, Harborside Farms will have the precise control over the plants' environment fulfilling our vision (and mission) of producing organic, sun grown Clean Cannabis at both scale and a fair price. We provide a competitive wage, medical, dental and vision insurance, an employer-matched 401k program, an Employee Assistance Program, FSA/Commuter Benefits, and paid time off to qualified staff member.
