Farm and Culinary Manager  David Antonio Robles is a farmer, activist, and artist who loves to use his skills to cultivate community and resilience among youth. As the grandchild of migrant farmworkers, David's farming roots run deep. He recognizes the power that food has to connect the individual to their culture, their community, and their environment and hopes to guide young people through that process. During his time as an undergrad, David started working for the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) where he began to understand the responsibilities of land stewardship and its connection with the health and resilience of his community. David comes to FoodWhat from the CASFS Apprenticeship in Ecological Horticulture as a 2nd year in the Farm Garden. He attended UCSC where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in History with a concentration on Social Movements in the Americas.
