Recently the AFSC New Mexico program hosted the annual conference of USDA CFP grantees. AFSC NM is a grantee and was happy to show its work to other grantees from around the country and learn about their work.

AFSC New Mexico staff and AFSC trained farmers hosted a tour of their USDA funded work, the Agri-Cultura Network. Here is one tour participants' blog about that tour:
