Rio Grande Farm Park

Our Programs & Projects

Commercial Farming Program

New & experienced farmers may rent a 1-acre plot (or less) to cultivate. Farmers participate in educational trainings covering topics from business practices to regenerative agriculture. Photo copyright 2021 Will Widmer, courtesy of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Family Farming Program (for families & individuals)

Grow for sustenance, for fun, or for your own learning in a family plot, which are open for use by the public. Rules apply, and plots are assigned to families/groups at the beginning of the growing season.

About Us

The Rio Grande Farm Park welcomes aspiring growers to join commercial or community plots and participate in regenerative agriculture workshops. During summer months, people may purchase fresh produce from RGFP farmers at an on-site Farm Stand, Alamosa Farmers Market, or Valley Roots Food Hub. In addition to cultivation, RGFP encourages play and reflection in the nature play area and robust Rio Grande trail system. Committed volunteers keep the Farm Park thriving, so join us for volunteer work days the last Saturday of every month. Visit us! We are located in Alamosa on HWY 17 just north of HWY 160, or a short walk from Cole Park across the river bridge.

Join us for a Volunteer Work Day on the last Saturday of the month (usually), adopt-a-project on your own time, or organize a group work day. The growing season requires many hands on the land to help with planting, weeding, and harvest. We can always use help and are happy to involve you in whatever capacity you are hoping to give! Seniors should check out our local RSVP page, a volunteer program for Seniors in Alamosa. Photo of 2021 YouthWorks volunteers by Seth Armentrout.

We’ve got a big thank you to float into the universe! The folks at San Luis Valley Trout Unlimited recently helped us and Davis Engineering with a drought resilience project. SLV TU brought a boat and equipment to help us conduct a survey on storage capacity in the slough. Usually, this gear is used for river trips and studies on cutthroat trout habitat. Thanks to them, we’ll have a more resilient local foods system in the future. Check out the aerial shots our Farm Assistant Brayan got of the team in action! And consider attending SLV Trout Unlimited’s annual auction fundraiser this Saturday, June 3rd, at the Colorado Farm Brewery. ... See MoreSee Less
