“Farming is a dedication of your body,
to the land… and to people.”

~Christa Barfield, urban farmer & entrepreneur

All over the Valley, water is flowing and things are going into the ground. We’ll be fed, nourished, and delighted with flavor in the coming months because of the time, effort, and dedication of our farmers and producers. For this, we are grateful.

We hope you’ll take time this Saturday to pick up organic seed starts at the Alamosa Community Greenhouse, volunteer at the Farm Park, and join Aaron for a bee workshop afterwards (what better way to celebrate World Bee Day?!). Read on for more..
