OUR STAFF

Head Farmer & Educator

Rich Adeyemi

Rich Adeyemi is an immigrant farmer from Nigeria and has been farming organically for 10 years before relocating to the United States. He is passionate about quality nutrition for families, ecosystem conservation, sustainability, urban farming and community development. Through his work, he pioneered a seed saving initiative which led to the creation of a seed bank to save and share indigenous seed varieties from going into extinction.

Back in his home country, Rich’s strong desire for making food available, affordable and accessible led him to designing training curricula such as Farm to School Africa, Small Space Gardening, Rural Women Entrepreneurship Development Program, and Farming as a Business, which he relentlessly used in training families, schools, rural and urban communities to pursue and attain food security sustainably.

Rich is certified in Level 2 Food Safety in Catering from Chartered Institute of
Environmental Health UK, Food Security and Sustainability in Crop Production from Wageningen University & Research Netherlands and also a Master Composter with Bernalillo County Extension Master Composter Program.

Farm Coordinator

Kelvin Schenk

Farm Coordinator, Kelvin Schenk, was blessed to be born into a multi-generational farm family. He grew up working on the family farm and was involved in youth farm organizations such as 4-H and Future Farmers of America on local, state and national levels. Kelvin continued his agriculture education at Iowa State University as an agricultural business major until he switched to health sciences and graduated with a degree in exercise physiology. Kelvin has worked for several hospitals while continuing to be involved with the family farms. In 2013, he became a farm owner.

When he retired from the medical field, Kelvin joined the Board of Directors of the Rio Grande Community Farm. In 2018, he transitioned to the Farm Coordinator position where his ongoing education and work has focused on regenerative agriculture. Kelvin’s overarching philosophy has been access to the land for everyone while integrating neurodiverse populations for social and ecological benefits.
