Farmworker of the Year

A hearty congratulations to Placido Garcia— CHD’s Farmworker of the Year! We’re honored to recognize Placido for his decades of hard work and success. At age 20, Placido came to the U.S. and went to work picking fruits and vegetables across California. He wanted more for his life and sought help from CHD to improve his language and job skills. His dedication paid off, leading to a job as vineyard foreman at Chateau Montelena Winery. Placido also served on the Calistoga City Council and was named Napa Valley’s 2003 Hispanic Citizen of the Year. In his spare time, Placido sings baritone in Napa Valley operas and works to improve conditions for farmworkers.
