Jardin Juntos in Tierra Contenta

Home Grown New Mexico is working with two locations in Tierra Contenta to have two new community gardens open next month. We have added a monthly junto to discuss gardening and community homesteading. Hope you can join us this month to take a tour of the Plaza Contenta Community Garden space.

Jardin Junto
Wednesday, April 18th at 5:30pm
Plaza Contenta is on Jaguar and Paseo del Sol
Home Grown New Mexico also holds monthly potlucks to discuss community homesteading.

  • Seed Exchange! We will have seeds available and you should bring any seeds that you saved from your garden or in seed packets. You can also bring plant starts if you want to share them.
  • Meet the organizers of two new community gardens in Tierra Contenta.  Earth Care’s Youth and Community Garden is at Zona del Sol (Jaguar and Country Club) and down the street is a Community Garden at Plaza Contenta (Jaguar and Paseo del Sol).

The goal of our juntos 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.

Home Grown New Mexico hopes to continue to communicate these events and add more speakers and activities to our calendar.  For more information on the juntos, email or call 473-1403.
