Community Options Rock!

Yesterday, a group of adults with disabilities from Community Options came to help pick rocks from the lower field.  What a delight to have such whimsical characters bless our garden!  We will arrange to have a special plot for them so they can plant their own vegetable starts.

More fruits trees to plant

The first seeds to germinate in the Greenhouse (Bokchoy)

 Our regular farm days for volunteers are held every Thursday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00pm (winter schedule)


You are all invited to our first Community Meeting
Sunday March 18
at Gaia Gardens, 2255 Paseo de los Chamisos (see directions here)

Gaia Gardens is an attempt to create an innovative urban farm model suited for Santa Fe.  We have a lot of land and could create an interesting showcase for a variety of soil preparations, as well as growing, composting and beekeeping methods. Classes, celebrations and events could also be weaved in the farm activities.  What we choose to do and how we organize ourselves to do it is entirely up to the community that will gather around this project.  Our exploration centers around how to foster sustainable food production in the city while also offering a social space to help build resilient community.
Please join us on Sunday for a casual discussion about your ideas, aspirations and interest in getting involved in this new experiment.  If you cannot attend, please email your suggestions and/or interest in contributing.
