On June 26th, 2011, the day the Las Conchas Fire erupted in Northern New Mexico, ground was broken at this precious little neighborhood garden in Santa Fe. The Dandelion Ranch will be presented with six other gardens in Santa Fe on the 2nd Annual Homegrown and Edible KITCHEN GARDEN & COOP TOUR July 29th, 2012 9am-2pm. We'd love it if you attend. Go to this link for details, homegrownnewmexico.orgThe few people who began the project were passionate and joy-filled. There was deep knowledge and energy flowing and the empty, barren hillside was double-dug over the course of a few months, but that very day, the soil was amended, watered, prayed upon and planted. A new garden was born.
There is a lot of Work/Play to be done/had here at the Ranch before the TOUR. If you'd like to come by and lend a hand, it'd be a great way to see and feel the garden and your help would be greatly appreciated. All day work party this Saturday the 21st. Dan or Giselle Piburn 505-989-4424, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to officially help and volunteer on the TOUR, there's a training in Santa Fe from 10-11 on Sat at the community room behind Whole Foods (formerly Wild Oats).
