Gabe was born in San Francisco where his parents attended Stephen Gaskin’s Monday Night Class. In 1973 his family moved to The Farm and in 1974 Gabe started attending The Farm School. He was in 9th grade when the “change-over” happened on The Farm and the high school was forced to close. His family returned to California, but Gabe decided to come back to The Farm and attend Columbia State where he majored in education. Gabe ended up returning to California and attended several other schools including Portland Community College and Western Oregon University.
Over the years Gabe has maintained his connection to the Farm Community and has always been part of the Farm’s extended family. While visiting The Farm in 2021, he was offered a position here at The Farm School. He accepted and it seems like it was meant to be.
Being a Farm School Alumni made this opportunity especially meaningful to Gabe and he is extremely happy to be part of the school again. While teaching Math, Science, and Geography Gabe has made a solid meaningful connection with the entire student body.
