Rio Grande Farm Park
Nestled in Alamosa, Colorado, the Rio Grande Farm Park holds at its core Preservation and Creation: the preservation of the San Luis Valley's agricultural heritage, precious water resource, and open public spaces, the creation of economic development, healthy living practices, and educational opportunities.
This ground-breaking project is being developed under the umbrella organization San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition. The Farm Park is currently working on several programs and initiatives, including a beginning farmer incubator for aspiring farmers to create their own micro-business, community farm plots, environmental education, outdoor recreation, and making strides towards the build-out of the community created master plan. To support our efforts and receive some fun perks join the Friends of the Rio Grande Farm Park at www.riograndfarmpark.org/friendsof.
Visit us! We are located at the East entrance of Alamosa in South-Central Colorado on HWY 17 just north of HWY 160. We have monthly workdays at the Park the last Saturday of every month (weather permitting).
