Rio Grande Community Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that farms in Albuquerque on public land (the Los Poblanos Fields Open Space in the North Valley) since 1997. The farm grows Certified Organic fruit and vegetable crops (primarily annuals), as well as grows 25% or more of our acreage in wildlife habitat/feed such as corn, sorghum, sunflowers, and an abundance of other flowers and grains. We have a 2-acre community garden which offers neighbors and school groups a place to learn about and grow their own food, and we offer education programs such as farm camps and farm tours. Our most popular program is the annual Albuquerque Maize Maze which is 7 acres of corn and other cover crops cut in a maze pattern with an educational theme, that thousands of Burquenos attend during the fall season. We value the property’s status as Open Space land and are proud to participate in wildlife habitat preservation as well as offering accessible hands-in-the-dirt opportunities. This program has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.
“The whole network of farmers around the whole Rio Grande corridor are really connected with donating to food banks.” [17:00]
