Meet your Hawthorne Farm Stewards: Sergio and Divine!
Sergio has been a part of Youth Farm since our first year in the Hawthorne Neighborhood in 2011 and is one of the youth founders of our Hawthorne Program. As a middle school student at Nellie Stone Johnson Community School, Sergio built the school garden, organized with other students the school’s composting program, and helped Youth Farm grow its program on the Northside. He returns this year as a Farm Steward and Co-Manager of Youth Farm’s Nellie Stone Johnson Farm. Learn more about Sergio and how to contact him here.
Divine joined the Hawthorne Youth Farm team 3 years ago and brought with her passion and experience in gardening in her community. Prior to her time at Youth Farm, she worked with Project Sweetie Pie. Divine’s passion for gardening is contagious and extends to the youth she serves in our program. Divine returns this year as a Farm Steward and Co-Manager of Youth Farm’s Nellie Stone Johnson Farm. Learn more about Divine and how to contact her here.
We are excited to have Sergio and Divine team up to grow food on the Northside and engage youth at Nellie Stone Johnson.
