ALAMOSA — Jesse Marchildon, a young farmer based in Alamosa, Colorado, will share his experiences with permaculture and regenerative agriculture through the lens of social and ecological justice, 7 p.m., Thursday, July 2, on Zoom as part of SOIL Sangre de Cristo’s monthly community meeting.

“Justice cannot exist when we depend on Kroger for our food,” Jesse says. Jesse worked as a field hand for Agriburbia, an innovative group farming in yards and fields across the greater Denver area, then spent three years working and learning on farms in New York, Colorado, California, and Hawai’i before returning to his hometown of Alamosa to manage the Rio Grande Farm Park (RGFP).

During his three seasons at the RGFP he planned potential systems for poultry-centered permaculture in the San Luis Valley. He now works in local food distribution at the Valley Roots Food Hub while he builds Dancing Badger Farm with his fiancée Marlena Antonucci.
