Sonoma Farm at Sweetwater Spectrum

 
The farm provides ample opportunities for Sweetwater residents and volunteers. It is also a resource to the entire Sonoma community. Using sustainable practices, we grow a wide variety of fruit, vegetables, nursery starts and microgreens, which are used on-site and available for purchase. 
 
News: Sweetwater warmly welcomes our new Farm Assistant,  Johnny Fontenot. With an affinity for farming paired with a strong sense of community and a can-do attitude we are excited to watch the farm flourish even more!

Meet the Farm Team!  

 

Luke joined the Sweetwater Spectrum team in the Spring of 2015 to apply his skills, knowledge, and excitement to the management of the on-site farm. During undergrad and after graduating from Connecticut College in 2013, Luke has worked at a number of diverse small-scale sustainable farms where he learned the art of agriculture through hands-on involvement. Besides his passion for manual farm work, Luke loves to teach others about farming and is excited to be able to work side by side with residents of Sweetwater. Luke cannot wait to oversee the continued growth and development of the farm into a setting where residents, volunteers, and anyone who is enthusiastic about sustainable agriculture can come together to share in the love of gardening. 

 

Justine joined the Sweetwater team first as the farm assistant in Spring 2015.  In the Summer of 2015 she began as the Farm Enrichment Coordinator.  Justine has been working to increase resident engagement and resident-driven opportunities on the farm. She is passionate about helping residents meet their goals through her work as a Horticultural Therapist student. She obtained her B.A. in Landscape Architecture and Sustainable City Planning at UC Berkeley in 2012, and has since worked on small organic farms and nurseries, where she has developed her horticultural knowledge. She is currently in the process of becoming a registered Horticultural Therapist through the University of Colorado and the Horticultural Therapy Institute. She hopes to earn her Masters of Education degree, and to continue to develop Horticultural Therapy programming in the future. She is very excited to find new and fun ways involve the residents and the larger community on the farm!
