Cool Season Gardening

September 12, 9:30-11:30 am
at the Barn at the Rio Grande Community Farm
taught by Farmer Deb Brubaker

New Mexico’s mild climate provides plenty of time to have a beautiful and productive garden year-round. Cool-season vegetables grown in the fall can often be more productive than in spring, with fewer insect problems and less variable temperatures. Join us to discuss the wide range of cool-season vegetables, chill protection techniques, successive planting, and more.

Anne Cooper’s Land Art Installation

By NewsNo Comments

annecooper-landartAnne Cooper’s land art entitled Anitya, meaning “impermanence” in Sanskrit, was installed in February.  The work is comprised of 81 bowls made from terracottacolored clay harvested from her land near Chama, New Mexico. Placed in a 9 x 9 foot grid, the raw clay bowls contain seed balls depending on the seasonal rains the seeds may sprout: wheat, rye, oats, blue gramma, side oats gramma, gallenta, little bluestem and other dryland grasses. The bowls eventually dissolve, returning to and leaving red stains in the earth.

Anne helped preserve the Los Poblanos Open Space from development during 1994 through 1997 when it was purchased by the City of Albuquerque.
