Summer is our busiest time of year and we invite you along on our journey! Do you enjoy the outdoors- the fresh air and warm weather? Do you enjoy meeting new people? Or even learning something new? These are all opportunities we offer at Riverview Gardens. So, will you join us on the farm and become a volunteer?

If you noticed, we didn't mention any requirements about farming, gardening, or vegetables. That is because you don't need any of that experience! We will teach you everything you need to know about seeding, transplanting, and harvesting produce. We would love to have you work with us at Riverview Gardens, a place to grow.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to build dignity through job training and employment. We serve individuals with multiple barriers to stable employment and empower them to be part of their own solution.

Description

Who We Are

Riverview Gardens is a social innovation non-profit organization with a mission to build dignity through job training and employment. Founded in December 2011, Riverview Gardens is a collaborative transformation of a 72-acre golf course and country club into "A Place To Grow." Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in providing job training for people with barriers to stable employment. We have five interactive social enterprises that provide unlimited job-training opportunities and sources of revenue to support the mission. These are the urban farm, hydroponics greenhouse, community center and park space, maintenance contracts, and Downtown Appleton building. We seek to engage the entire community in addressing the root causes of unemployment, poverty and homelessness through hard work, creativity and human dignity.

What We Do

Riverview Gardens approaches its vision with the core concept that all people have value and can contribute to the community in which they live. ServiceWorks is Riverview Gardens’ no-fail, job-training program that teaches four key transferable work skills to help people obtain stable, permanent employment. Upon completing the 90-hour program, participants are connected to employment and receive supportive services through a three-year Placement Success Program, to ensure progress and stability. Without volunteers, we can not effectively serve our community and our program participants. Join us and find A Place to Grow.
