"Beautiful cultural traditions surround farming,"says Sayrah Namaste, a staff member at AFSC-New Mexico. "At one of the farms, Azteca dancers bless the fields with their feet and their voices. The acequias are filled with flower petals once a year, a ritual passed down for generations to bless the source of life."
