Please support a petition to rename Frenchy’s Garden after Amy Hetager, co-founder of Home Grown New Mexico. Amy was a friend to many of us and we’d like have her name at a place she so enjoyed.
Please contact Bette Booth at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign the petition for the renaming of the garden.
This is just a reminder about an important resource that often ends up going down the drain. Grey water can supply or augment the moisture to your garden.
The flyer here will give you an introduction to this water source as we move into the dry months ahead.
Just came across this great piece about a Santa Fe Permaculture installation in Sunset Magazine that ran before the word blog was invented.
As we head into a traditionally dry time of year for this area of the county it is important to remember the impact of longer term trends regarding water supply and our nation. Linked here is an interview I did on The Huffington Post a year ago with a panel discussing this issue.
Mayor Javier Gonzales is joining mayors across the country in asking residents to make a commitment to conserve water by taking part in a friendly national community service contest to see who can be the most water-wise through a series of informative, easy-to-use online pledges. Residents can enter by making water conservation pledges at http://www.mywaterpledge.com/
In an upcoming mailer we revisit an article about some of our work featured in the April 2013 issue of New Mexico Magazine.
