Gerardo Patron, Co-Farm Manager

Gerardo began working at Red Wiggler in February 2018,  joining Melissa as a Co-Farm Manager. The Farm Managers work cooperatively to balance food production and grower program objectives.

Prior to joining the Red Wiggler team, Gerardo worked five growing seasons on a handful of small-scale, mixed vegetable organic farms, engaging many communities along the way. Gerardo also earned a Master’s in economics from the University of Denver, examining food systems and their multi-layered impacts in their locale. 

Gerardo enjoys seeing his long-time girlfriend Brooke in West Virginia or exploring the region when she comes to visit Maryland. Gerardo would love to trade stories with you of times spent on hiking trails, cycleways, rivers, travel abroad, and really, much else.
