LISTEN: Cultivating Health With Community Farms
KUNM Call In Show 5/5 8 a: New Mexico has one of the oldest and most vibrant farming traditions in the country. Centuries-old acequia watering systems and ancient farming techniques are still used to grow crops that feed people from Taos to Las Cruces.
We’ll take a look at New Mexico’s farming culture, and how community farms are growing fruits and vegetables for people who don’t have access to healthy food. We want to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call in live during the program.
