"Farming for a Sustainable Community: A Training Manual" documents the knowledge of Don Bustos, lifelong New Mexican farmer and director of AFSC's New Mexico program, and the farmer-to-farmer training program developed by AFSC to pass down the knowledge he and his ancestors have known for generations. 

The manual presents models for land selection, soil preparation, crop planning, cultivation, handling, marketing and season extension with point-by-point instruction, case studies, illustrations, and descriptions.

This knowledge is shared free of charge. Please credit AFSC when referencing the manual.
