Rocky Casillas Aguirre

Operations Manager


Rocky is originally from Tijuana, Mexico, but was raised in Northfield. His connection to the Northfield community, interest in wildlife conservation on agriculture lands and love for storytelling are some of the reasons he’s been part of the team since 2016. As Operations Manager, Rocky leads our marketing and communications work, as well as fundraising and donor relations. Additionally, Rocky is leading the monitoring of wildlife on our farm, conducting wildlife surveys and developing a species database. Wildlife provide a wealth of ecosystem services to farms. Knowing what species are on the landscape can help better inform our farm's conservation plans.

What Rocky Enjoys About Sharing Our Roots

I’m very grateful to have landed at Sharing Our Roots. I truly admire our team for the amazing work everyone's doing out in the community and on the farm. We’re providing resources that bridge healthy food access for immigrants and restoring a 100-acre landscape into a thriving ecosystem. It’s a great feeling to be part of these efforts in my hometown.
