Reunity Resources Farm Tour

Sponsored by Home Grown New Mexico and co-sponsored by Slow Foods Santa Fe. Visit Santa Fe’s community farm practicing organic and regenerative agriculture. Reunity Resources is working with closed loop nutrient systems using food waste from local businesses to create a variety of compost and mulch products using Aerated Static Piles and vermicomposting (worms)

The compost operation has diverted over 5 million pounds of food waste from the landfill and sequestered much of that car- bon in the soil increasing fertility and water absorption. The results are evident in the amazing variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers produced on the farm. The farm is commit- ted to serving the community through education and outreach and donates much of the produce to local hunger projects. The farm stand will be open as well.

Location: 1829 San Ysidro Crossing • Santa Fe
Fee: $5 for members/$20 for non-members

Green Tractor Farm Tour

Slow Food Santa Fe and Home Grown New Mexico are delighted to co-sponsor a tour of Green Tractor Farm in historic La Cienega near Santa Fe. We’ll meet this multi-generational farming family, learn about the farm and its history, and hear about the current growing season and its challenges. Then we’ll take a tour of the fields and greenhouses. Before departing we’ll have an opportunity to purchase produce and flowers so bring your shopping bags! (Green Tractor takes cash and credit cards.)

Green Tractor Farm received the 2013 Santa Fe Farmer’s Market Institute “Farmer All Star” award for their contributions to the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. And more recently Green Tractor was recognized by the Santa Fe Pojoaque Soil and Water Conservation District for managing their farm to maximize the productive capacity of their land. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this remarkable farm!
