Facilities and Construction

A native of Burkina Faso, Rod, as he's known around the farm, immigrated to the US in 2011. After studying Performing Arts at College of the Desert in Palm Desert, CA, he matriculated in the Made in NY Production Assistant Training Program, from which he graduated in 2014. His love of nature and desire to protect the environment led him to Brooklyn Grange, where he works with our Design/Build arm creating green spaces for clients around the city, and building and maintaining infrastructure for our farms. A skilled builder, Rod has never uttered the phrase "I can't do it." He is a firm believer in the power of positivity, and that each day brings with it the opportunity to learn something new.
