Bilingual Garden Specialist
Jonathan Bravo joined LandPaths in 2010. As Bilingual Garden Specialist he coordinates programs, family garden allotments, and volunteers at Bayer Farm and Andy’s Unity Park Community Garden. Jonathan is often the first point of contact for neighbors, volunteers, students, and educators at our community gardens in Roseland and Southwest Santa Rosa.
Born in Progreso de O. Hidalgo, Mexico, Jonathan received a B.A.in Mathematics from the Escuela Normal Valle del Mezquital. He went on to earn a Master’s degree in Arithmetic from Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia and a second Master’s degree in Geometry and Trigonometry from the University of Havana, Cuba.
In 2002, Jonathan moved to Sonoma County. Since then, he’s done everything from teaching to construction to cleaning theaters. He has worked as a math tutor and taught Spanish language GED courses at Santa Rosa Junior College.
Jonathan finds much solace in his faith, and has served as a counselor for the Spanish speaking community through The Salvation Army. He believes in work, responsibility and dedication. His work at LandPaths allows him to share his love of the land, clear food, and a legacy of caring for life.
He lives with his wife Angeles. Their three daughters have all grown and graduated. An avid chess player, Jonathan is also passionate about his coffee-making ritual, and says he’s “very selfish since he only plays the guitar for himself.”
