The Santa Fe Complex and Home Grown New Mexico continue the Community Homesteading Potluck Gatherings at the Santa Fe Complex.
Next event is Tuesday, August 23rd at 6:30pm
- Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Swap
This will work like a seed swap where you bring a bundle of greens, squash, small basket of tomatoes or whatever produce that you want to share with the community or donate. This was planned at request of potluck attendees. Please bring only produce for this event and let us know if you have additional ideas for future food swaps. The extra food will be donated to the Food Depot.
- The Pollinator Project
Loretta McGrath and Tawnya Laveta will speak. This group is teaching people to create and support a pollinator-friendly environment. Come learn the basics, how to get involved and how to contact them.
- Carbon Economy Series
Iginia Boccalandro will discuss the the Carbon Economy, Carbon Farming and Regenerative Agriculture Series workshops. Their next event is “Building Local Food Systems” on August 26.
- Community Garden Tour
Eight Santa Fe and Eldorado Community Gardens will hold the First Annual Community Garden Tour on Saturday, September 17 at 1pm
The goal of our potlucks is to bring individuals together and organically create an environment of education between the different levels of experience. Come if you are a novice, an expert, or anything in between in the topics of gardening, beekeeping, backyard chicken coops and urban farming.
Bring a dish to share with the group. We want this to be a zero waste event so please bring a plate, silverware and a cup. You could even bring your dish or drink in a reusable container.
Bring food donations for the Food Depot. They will accept locally grown produce, canned goods or dry packaged food. We will be delivering these donations to the Food Depot at all future potluck events. The last few months we had one bag to donate. We hope to double that this month!
Home Grown New Mexico hopes to continue to communicate these events and add more speakers and activities to our calendar. To facilitate this there is a suggested donation of $5 or more. The Santa Fe Complex is located at 632 Agua Fria Street with parking off Romero Street before the Ark Bookstore and visit http://sfcomplex.org/ for more detailed directions.
