The Santa Fe Complex and Home Grown New Mexico continue the Community Homesteading Potluck Gatherings at the Santa Fe Complex.
Next event is Tuesday, October 25 at 6:30pm
- The Master Gardener Association will be discussing their 2012 classes. Come to hear about registration, schedules and ways that you can get involved next year. A Master Gardener is a person who has been trained in basic horticulture by the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service, and in return, shares that knowledge with others in the community. Once trained, Master Gardeners volunteer their time, experience and knowledge in a variety of programs.
- We will have a discussion about preparing your homestead for the winter. This will include your gardens, bees, chickens and anything else that the group wants to discuss.
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.
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.
