Bio
Adonis “Don” Alamban is a Tribal Extension Educator with the La Paz County/Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) Cooperative Extension Office in Parker, Arizona. He handles the Federally Recognized Tribal Extension Program (FRTEP), and the Master Gardener Program. He advocates local food production as a means to better health and nutrition. As such, he has started school gardens in the two elementary schools in the CRIT Reservation and the Town of Parker, to teach school children how to grow nutritious vegetables. He uses the school garden as an outdoor classroom to teach simple Math and Science concepts pertaining to gardening. He also works with the county Ag Agent in conducting pest management trials to generate local data that will help farmers minimize losses due to pest and diseases.

Don has a Bachelors’ degree in Agriculture which he earned in the Philippines, and has worked in the Ag Industry for more than twenty years before migrating to the US. He is currently taking an online course in Masters in Agricultural Education at the University of Arizona Online Graduate School, which he believes will help him serve the community even better.

He migrated with his family to the US in 2008 when his wife got a job at the local hospital in Parker and has lived here since. They have three children. He volunteered for the Master Gardener program for five years before landing his first job with the Extension Office. He serves in the music ministry, with his family, at the Sacred Heart Catholic church in Parker. He also coordinates the Cursillo (English Group) activities of the parish.

Don firmly believes that hard work, dedication and a strong belief in God are keys to a successful and well balanced life.
