Hire Workers


Primavera Works is the best kind of day labor—workers who vitally need work get to earn money, and you get the workers you need, when and where you need them. Works 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 Hire Primavera Works?

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.

Our workers are fully supported for the length of any job assignment.


Buffel Grass Management

Buffel grass is an invasive non-native species of plant that is slowly choking out other native species. Click here to read more about how buffel grass is changing the landscape of the Sonoran desert. Proper buffel grass 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 buffel grass and its removal, Primavera Works crews can help minimize this ugly fire hazard.

Call us at (520) 882-9668 to find out how we can help with your buffel grass.


BEFORE: A buffel grass infested area.   AFTER: Area cleared by Primavera Works.


Water Harvesting

Our Certified Water Harvesting Technicians will design and install a system that fits your needs. We can make minimal installations, like earth works, 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.
