Keston Jones

Born on the Island of Trinidad, Keston was raised on a farm by his grandmother. From the beginning he has associated farming with family and working together.  He immigrated to Brooklyn NY in the mid 80’s, where he settled in Crown Heights. Despite setbacks, including family trauma, bullying and juvenile incarceration, he used the knowledge gained from his personal experience, education and working with other organizations to change his life and become a leader in his community.

Keston is the founder of the Foundation for the Advancement and Rehabilitation of the Marginalized (FARM). Based in Brooklyn, the FARM uses credible messengers to spread hope, community love, and the importance of second chances.
