10 Helpful Ways to Give

7) HIRE PRIMAVERA WORKS

Primavera Works is the best kind of day labor for your residential or business needs. Our workers vitally need work, need to earn money, and you get the workers you need, when and where you need them. Our social enterprise is a nonprofit staffing agency that offers the unemployed and under-employed a chance to get on their feet, and you get a chance to support the community while getting the job done.


Why Primavera Works?

quality work  •  affordable rates  •  social impact

We know you have choices for your staffing needs. We’re the best option when hiring temporary labor because we’re not trying to make a profit, we’re trying to make a difference. We charge fair prices and pay our workers above minimum wage. We provide free lunches, bus passes, appropriate clothing for the job, safety equipment, job readiness training classes, housing and much more to our workers.

Employees are fully screened. Their skills are assessed allowing us to match qualified applicants to your job needs. Primavera Works assumes responsibility for employment eligibility verification and for adhering to fair and equal employment practices. Primavera Works will also handle the employee coaching and disciplinary action if such a need should arise.

We eliminate advertising and interviewing costs for businesses, and for every person who employs our workers, we handle all the administrative work: we do all payroll processing expenses including, but not limited to Worker's Comp and unemployment insurance, reporting taxes, and keeping payroll records.

Water Harvesting

Our Certified Water Harvesting Technicians will design and install a system that fits your needs. We can make minimal installations, like earthworks, or larger-scale cisterns for food-producing plants or gardens. Even the smallest steps will reduce your water bills and help restore the natural native balance to our desert.

Work performed includes, but is not limited to:

  • sustainable landscaping
  • earthworks and erosion control
  • rainwater catchment tanks
  • green infrastructure, installation, and maintenance.

Besides saving you some money on water bills, some types of green infrastructure and rainwater harvesting are eligible for rebates from the City of Tucson. Ask us how you can earn a City of Tucson Rebate.  ROC LICENSE #312939


Buffel Grass Management

Buffelgrass is an invasive non-native species of plant that is slowly choking out other native species and changing the landscape of the Sonoran desert. Proper buffelgrass removal is important to preserving the native species of plants that grow in the wild and in your yard.

Trained by WeedWackers in proper identification of buffelgrass and its removal, Primavera Works crews can help minimize this ugly fire hazard.
