59 Rindge Ave
DescriptionBloombrick Urban Agriculture is a newly established indoor urban farm located in the heart of Cambridge, MA. We currently specialize in growing and selling cut and still living microgreens and wheatgrass in various hydroponic and soil systems, but our goal, vision, and mission is much larger; We’d like to help cities, starting with Boston, to become fully sustainable, truly local, and dynamically regenerative in their produce production, removing the need for restaurants, individuals, and grocery stores to have their food shipped in from thousands of miles away.
We want to show people that indoor home gardening and commercial urban greenhouse farming is not only economically feasible, but practical and essential to the growing demand of healthy organic fresh produce in our cities. By combining the time honored growing traditions and customs of our shared farming ancestry with the most current horticultural technology, organic nutrient lines, and forward thinking urban farming practices Bloombrick’s end goal is to be the modern torchbearer for a new type of farming, helping to lead a journey back to a time when fresh, cheap, and local produce was the rule, not the exception.
In exchange for your time and focus, you'll learn to grow your own fruits and vegitables, indoors and outdoors,in an urban environment, go deep into the local food industry, and meet top chefs and restaurant owners from all around the Boston area, all while interacting with dynamic individuals in the urban agriculture field, and helping to bring real change to the North East’s food culture. You’ll also be first in line to come on as a full time/part time employee when our large scale vertical farms are constructed, and our vision spreads.
Simply put, we want a hard working and centered individual, with the drive and passion needed to tackle the herculean task of helping Bloombrick change the current degenerative food system.
