Sergio Schwartz

John Liu

My name is Sergio Schwartz, son of my Guatemalan immigrant father and my American mother. I was born, raised and have spent all but a few years of my life in New Mexico. I am beginning to actively pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a farmer and active advocate for food justice in NM after working for 10 years as a stay-at-home parent. In the middle of the pandemic I had the privilege of serving with Americorps Seedcorps at Road Runner Food Bank, and learned so much about our community and was humbled and awed by the pressing need to reimagine our food systems. I am in my second year of co-organizing a community farm hub in the South Valley called Del Cielo.
