IDO, Beggars and a Fresco

Civic improvement, safety at issue

By
Taking a cue from ancient Roman leaders, Albuquerque City Councilors made it a crime to give beggars a quarter along busy roadways, commissioned a new fresco Downtown and tweaked the proposed overhaul of the city’s planning and zoning codes.

Urban Foraging Walk

By Mayo Lua de Frenchie
The preconception of the desert is perceived as brown, spiky, hot and just generally kind of unwelcoming. We don't think about being able to forage for food and survive on this vegetation, especially in the urban desert of Albuquerque. Welp, Spur Line Supply Co. is about to change that notion. Join other curious omnivores and fans of the holistic on Sunday, March 31 from 12:30 to 1:15pm on an Urban Foraging Walk. Learn to identify and harvest tasty and practical foliage with a focus on invasive and humdrum plants we walk by every day that can be used for things like food, tea and skin care. This walk is free and suitable for all ages and abilities.
