If you’ve been lucky enough to meet Dominic at one of our farmers markets (Columbia City, University District, and/or Broadway) then you will know what I mean by he’s a one-of-a-kind!
Dominic was born and (mostly) raised here in Monroe. He even lived on the farm until he was 9 years old. That’s right, he was here for the very start of Willie Green’s Organic Farm! He remembers when Jeff leased a quarter acre of ground in Woodinville, then buying the first parcel of land in Monroe, which we now know as the hub of the farm. Back in those days, Dominic worked side-by-side with Jeff hand cutting the salad mix with scissors.
After some time exploring life off of the farm, building houses and, well, being a teenage boy, he’s back! His desire to come back and work with Jeff on WGOF was too strong to ignore, so Dominic called Jeff and they met over dinner to discuss possible employment. That night it was decided, and what a great decision it’s been!
Dominic is learning the farm from ground up (pun intended). J He is doing everything from weeding, seeding, working in the packing house, lead position on several farmers markets, venue assistance (he can set up the dance floor like no other!), handyman tasks, and any harebrain request Jeff throws at him.
He is a true asset to the farm, Dominic is one-of-a-kind and we wouldn’t be the same without him!
