Johny has been part of the SCLT family since he and a friend from the neighborhood wandered through City Farm’s gates when he was 8 years old. He was enchanted by the quiet, lush place surrounded by concrete and densely packed homes.

He volunteered at City Farm for several summers, and interned while a student at the Met High School. It was inevitable that he would return after he graduated, just when we needed him.

When Johny isn’t working part-time at SCLT, he takes classes at CCRI and works as a nursing assistant. His hobbies are road bike cycling and listening to music. He says his favorite animal is the bumble bee (“I even pet them!”). Remarkably, he has never been stung.
