Visitors will get their hands dirty this year as they learn about Pueblo agriculture by digging into the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC)’s Resilience Garden. On March 12, the IPCC’s Cultural Education team will launch a new series of monthly classes called “Seasons of Growth” to guide participants through the history and techniques of indigenous farming in New Mexico. The public is invited to participate in the planting, cultivating, and eventual harvesting of Pueblo crops on the second Sunday of every month from March through October, 2017, at 2401 12th St NW, Albuquerque.
The Resilience Garden is located on the north side of the IPCC campus and allows visitors to take a self-guided tour along pathways, immersing themselves in the sights, smells, and textures of Pueblo agriculture in person.
The “Seasons of Growth” series will focus on a different aspect of traditional agriculture in each class. Classes are $5 per participant, and everyone is invited to join individual sessions or attend the whole series. Anyone who wishes to get involved without taking the classes can arrive when they conclude at 11am to participate in an hour of volunteering. For more information, click here.
