We’ve Been Working on the Railyard

Discover how one day of your time, 24 hours over the year, will help the Railyard Stewards keep the Railyard Park on track. Orientation for the new Railyard Yardmasters volunteer gardeners is Saturday, March 24 at the Railyard Community Room, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Local experts will discuss the history, design, and gardens of Santa Fe’s favorite outdoor public space. To register, or for more information contact Alanna of the Railyard Stewards at 505-316-3596 or alanna@railyardpark.org and visit www.railyardpark.org.

Railyard Yardmasters garden together to keep Santa Fe’s favorite public space vibrant and beautiful while learning about life in the high desert. No prior experience or knowledge is necessary! There are many incentives to being a Yardmaster including free training and workshops, the intangible reward of enriching the visitor’s experience of the Railyard Park, and dedication awards.

Did you know that the Santa Fe Railyard Park was created through one of the largest community park planning projects in the country and has won numerous awards? The Railyard Park is an innovative 10-acre outdoor space with community food gardens, unique recreation areas, xeriscaped gardens, and meadows of native grass and wildflower. Along with coordinating the Yardmasters and service learning opportunities at the Park, the Railyard Stewards fill the park with positive, engaging community activities. The more we bring this care and programming to the park, the safer and more vibrant it becomes.
