Rio Grande Community Farm
1701 Montano Road NW
Los Ranchos, NM 87107
Our mission is to improve access to fresh, organic food and gardening education for diverse populations in Albuquerque. We work to demonstrate and educate the community about sustainable agriculture, enhance wildlife habitat and preserve agricultural land and traditions.
Rio Grande Community Farm provides two primary programs to support our mission. RGCF has a 2 acre community garden that is open to the public to garden their own rows/plots. Las Huertas Farmer Training is a skills development program, dedicated to training both current and aspiring producers in organic farming techniques in the high desert of NM. 25% of what we grow is for wildlife including flocks of migrating sandhill cranes. Each fall the City of Albuquerque and RGCF sponsor the annual Maize Maze, now in it's 19th year and a major fundraiser for RGCF.
