Join NYFC and local partners in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 18 from 1 – 4:30 p.m. to learn about agricultural water usage in the Middle Rio Grande. The workshop will include an overview of the history and cultural context of irrigation in New Mexico, a presentation from the Middle Rio Grande Conservation District on the ins and outs of irrigating in the MRGCD, and a presentation by Sharon Wirth of Audubon New Mexico about groundwater management and statewide water issues including adjudication and prior appropriation.
This workshop will be useful for those who are new to farming or new to central New Mexico, but it will also be helpful for those who have been farming in the region for a while. Coffee and snacks will be offered.
