Sergio is the most awesome person you’ll ever meet. He grew up near City Farm in Providence’s South Side and started volunteering when he was 13. In 2015 he joined SCLT’s Youth Staff. He will be a senior at Hope High School in the fall of 2018.
Sergio’s new job is selling food from the Somerset Hayward Youth Enterprise Farm at the Armory Park Farmers Market. Along with harvesting the produce, he’ll be staffing the booth, answering customers’ questions and managing transactions along with City Farm’s steward.
Sergio tries to make everyone around him laugh, even if he doesn’t know you. He has learned a lot about agriculture, and says, “I love knowing more as I get older and getting more responsibility at SCLT. I can still be a kid but also have work to do.” Sergio plans to run SCLT one day.
