Seed Exchange on April 26

Community Homesteading Potluck Gatherings
The Fourth Tuesday of Every Month and the Santa Fe Complex
Grow, Raise, Cook, Preserve
Teach, Learn, Mentor, Share

The Santa Fe Complex and Home Grown New Mexico continue the Community Homesteading Potluck Gatherings at the Santa Fe Complex. They take place on the fourth Tuesday of each month.

Next event is Tuesday,
April 26th at 7pm

  • We will have a Seed Exchange Table so bring  any seeds to share with others, envelopes or small baggies and a marking pen.
  • The Santa Fe Time Bank will discuss using their system as a way to share skills.
  • The Food Depot will talk about their program to grow an extra row of vegetables for donation.  We will accept donations of produce for the Food Depot at our potlucks.
  • Beneficial Farms CSA will discuss  their short-term shares, so that gardeners can enjoy local fruits and vegetables in May and June before their plants begin producing.  The CSA is year round!  Gardeners can join again in October for a winter share.

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. For more information on the potlucks, email homegrownnewmexico@gmail.com or call 473-1403.

Grow it. Make it. Store it. Eat it

Home Grown New Mexico produces events that educate and promote the awareness of nutritious, home grown food. Home Grown New Mexico creates venues where individuals and businesses that support home grown food production can exchange products, ideas and expertise. The vision is to enable New Mexicans to take personal responsibility for growing, making, storing and eating healthy food while enhancing like-minded businesses.
