Michelle Crisostomo is a second generation bona-fide farmer who raises poultry, grows fruit and vegetable crops, and specializes in microgreen production. She owns and operates Tiny Greens Guam, one of the leading producers of microgreens for many of the island’s major restaurants and hotels. She is also the owner of GU Hydro, a hydroponic consulting company serving the local community by providing customers the tools and support they need to start their own hydroponic gardens.
Michelle recently served four years on the Board of Directors for the Guam Women’s Chamber of Commerce as the previous Education Committee Chairperson, Finance Committee Chairperson and Treasurer. She now serves as County Committee member and Vice Chair for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA), representing all farmers in the central region of Guam (from Cross Island to Ysengsong road) overseeing FSA programs and outreach to the farming community. Her passion for progressive growth of household food security for her family and our communities, and empowering women with the knowledge and skill set to be self-reliant and operate their own self-sustaining farms was what planted the seed for Guåhan Sustainable Culture.
