Sarah Marcus
Americorps Food Security Coordinator

Sarah Marcus was born in South Korea and raised in Maryland where she received a BS in Biology at Salisbury University. After graduating college, she craved to live somewhere that let her enjoy more outdoor recreation. Durango then became her home in 2016 and she has lived here since. She worked full time for a botanical extraction company and became a
“Big Sister” in 2017. However, she still wished she could do more for her community. After chatting with a friend about her desire to work for a non-profit centered around community gardening, outreach, and education, Sarah ended up joining The Garden Project of SW Colorado as an Americorps member. After program shifts, she has transitioned into the Manna team. She is so gracious for the amazing opportunity to do impactful work with incredibly inspiring like-minded people that serve so much of the community.
