This week Youth Farm is honored to welcome our Hawthorne Community Organizer Marcus Kar!
Marcus comes to Youth Farm with deep connections on the Northside, a passion for community and relationship building, an ability to use music as a tool for community and youth development, and a love of food. We are honored that he has chosen to join our team.
Marcus will be learning alongside his fellow Youth Farm staff. His work on the Northside will include working alongside Farm Steward Sergio and taking what he learns from our Youth Farm model and adapting it to fit the communities we work in on the Northside. He will also continue our partnership with Nellie Stone Johnson school working to connect farming and nutrition to the classroom.
We are excited for what he has to offer and for the enthusiasm and passion he brings to youth work and food access. Welcome Marcus!
Marcus will be the main contact for all of Youth Farm Hawthorne and Northside work. Learn more about Marcus and how to contact him here
