Volunteer at Rio Grande Community Farm on March 28th from 9am - 12 to help clear a field of trellising, row cover, and drip lines so it can go into a cover crop. The farm is currently without staff so is dependent on your support to help rebuild after last year's tragic loss of water. The board will thank you afterwards with lunch. Please wear sunscreen and bring gloves.
When & Where
La Montanita Co-op
La Montanita Co-op is a community-owned, consumer cooperative with three (and a forth coming soon) locations in Albuquerque, one in Santa Fe, and one in Gallup. All stores offer fresh organicproduce, bulk foods, local organic beef, lamb and other meats and cheeses, fair trade products and a wide variety of natural and organic groceries, freshly prepared deli foods, natural body care, vitamins and supplements.
The Co-op continues its decades long commitment to local farmers and producers with its regional Co-op Trade Food-Shed Project. This initiative is creating wholesale markets and providing product pick-up and distribution, supply delivery service and refrigerated storage for local farmers and producers. With over 1100 local products from approximately 400 local producers and 20% of total purchases and sales in local food, the Co-op is a leader in the local foods movement.
While we serve over 14,000 Co-op member owners, we also seek to serve the larger community through ongoing education on the importance of the cooperative economic model and on the links between food, health and the environment.
