During her studies she completed the Las Huertas Farmer Training program in 2016 organizing a women’s group at Rio Grande Community Farm to connect mothers and children with each other and the soil. In August 2017, Christina joined the STEAM-NM AmeriCorps team as a garden coordinator for the University of New Mexico Lobo Gardens.  This position integrates college courses with outdoor experiential learning in the gardens, creating a pollinator corridor on campus, and outreach to members of the university and greater Albuquerque community.
