AFSC has been developing small scale organic farms in the South Valley for more than ten years and created the Agri-Cultura Network with partners La Plazita Institute, e-merging communities, and Valle Encantado. We have built eight passive solar coldframes for season extension, so farmers can grow in the winter. We have taught farmers how to sell to the Albuquerque Public Schools. We also organize the annual San Ysidro Celebration in the South Valley.
