Rio Grande Community Farm

Owned and operated by the City of Albuquerque’s Open Space Division, the Rio Grande Community Farm is a 138-acre farm free and open to all. Occupying the original site of Los Poblanos, one of the earliest Spanish Colonial settlements in the Rio Grande Valley, the farm acts as a community garden, wildlife habitat and certified organic cropland.  In addition to preserving the unique history of the city, the farm provides educational experiences, community service projects and recreational opportunities for Albuquerque residents while also working to significantly recharge the city’s depleted aquifer.  To secure the site in 1997, the City passed a two-year quarter cent sales tax to provide funds for its acquisition.
