Cultivating a vision to sustain generations: A conversation with Don Bustos

In August I spent a day in New Mexico, visiting AFSC’s farmer training program near Albuquerque.

I met the trainees, hearing from AFSC’s Sayrah Namaste about elements of the program and upcoming plans to expand state-wide, funded in large part by the Kellogg Foundation. I finished the day by talking with program director Don Bustos at his farm near Espanola.

Lucy Duncan (LD): What changes have you witnessed in the communities in which you've worked?
