Farm Description:We are located in the high desert, in a remote, historic, New Mexican agricultural river valley with traditional acequia (canal) flood irrigated fields. We have recently converted our market vegetable farm to a regenerative research farm, exploring social practice and ecology, desert polyculture development, no-till organic methods, wild-crafting, seed saving, raincatchment infrastructure, and alternative architecture and power systems. We grow subsistence vegetables, fruits, forage, hay, and produce dairy (goat cheese and meat) and poultry (eggs and meat) products. We live in a passive solar, straw bale, PV solar/grid-tied facility with solar hot water, greywater, and raincatch systems.
Type of work involved: gardening, animal care, general and sustainable building and construction, collaboration and assistance with educational, art, and community events, and all-around help. We take interns from March - November.
In 2012 we will be focusing on many alternative building projects, gardening, seed saving, and a community arts project called Seed Broadcast.
Accommodations are currently a 24’ Airstream trailer and in the near future will be an adobe casita. We are very interested in long term internship commitments. Minimally, one month stays are also welcome. We do not have an extra vehicle for use, but WWOOF'ers can catch a ride to town with us. Children and pets are possible. We have two small children and many pets so talk to us first. We speak English, but are slowly learning Spanish.
