A program explaining the new partnership between three community organizations designed to promote sustainable local agriculture.
“Food, Farms, Friends” will be presented by organizational leaders Connor Jandreau, Stewardship Coordinator, for the NM Land Conservancy, Michele Cody, ARCA Executive Director, and Carol Lopez, Casa San Ysidro Site Manager. In 2016 ARCA will commence farming the nearly two acre Heritage Field at Casa San Ysidro. This partnership will help fulfill the Museum’s intent to preserve New Mexican heritage by allowing the Museum to keep the Heritage Field agriculturally productive and expand Casa San Ysidro’s educational programming and community involvement to include local agriculture. Simultaneously it will support the field’s agricultural easement obtained through the New Mexico Land Conservancy. The program is co-hosted by the Corrales Historical Society and will be held in the Old Church located across the street from Casa San Ysidro: The Gutierrez/Minge House, at 973 Old Church Rd. From 1- 4 p.m. free open house- style tours and blacksmithing demonstrations will continue at the historic Casa San Ysidro. The public is invited to learn more about these three organizations and explore the history of agriculture in the Rio Abajo area of New Mexico.
