Re: Mike Event This Weekend

Re:Mike is a community event that will include creative approaches to re-energize St Michael’s Drive and Central Santa Fe.  To help develop a strong agricultural future for the St. Michael’s Drive District, Home Grown New Mexico was recruited to collaborate creatively with some of Santa Fe’s brightest visionaries including Ben Haggard, Nate Downey, Richard Jennings, Aaron Kauffman, and Erin Lloyd on issues surrounding stormwater and its potential to irrigate gardens and farms that supply kitchens, cafeterias and restaurants with fresh, local produce.

We hope that you join us for this free event on Friday, Sept 21 from 5pm-10pm, Saturday, September 22 from 11am-1pm, or Sunday from 11am-3pm at St. Michaels Village West (Llano Street and St. Michael’s Drive).


Home Grown New Mexico is proud to announce that both Richard Jennings (Earthwrights Designs) and Aaron Kauffman (Southwest Urban Hydrology) will be tour guides for their respective work at Salazar Elementary and at the La Farge Public Library.

Saturday, Sept 22 and Sunday, Sept 23
1:00pm Meet at the Home Grown New Mexico booth for the Library Tour
1:15pm Leave the booth to walk to the library
1:30pm Tour of the La Farge library’s new water catchment system with Aaron Kauffman

Saturday, Sept 22 ONLY

During the event, sidewalk chalk will be used to ‘daylight’ the Arroyo de los Pinos that currently flows beneath the asphalt of St. Michael’s Drive.  Also, Home Grown New Mexico will also have a truck farm and pallet farm to demonstrate ways of growing crops in parking lots, roof tops, and places where cultivating soil may be impractical.

Here is more information from Re: Mike on the event. We hope that you visit for details.
