Not Forgotten Outreach inc, is a 501 (c) (3) non profit dedicated to motivating Military, Veterans & their Families, and Gold Star Families of fallen heroes to participate in recreational, therapeutic and/or farming activities to inspire the healing process. Not Forgotten Outreach creates opportunities to improve relationships and build comradery, while at the same time bolstering mindfulness and greater well being. Not Forgotten Outreach served 3,698 military families from New Mexico in 2018.
In addition to our numerous programs, we provide disabled veterans and Gold Star Families with information about and referrals to Veteran Administration and other recreational and therapeutic sport activities.
Not Forgotten Outreach, Inc. is transforming a well-known pasture near the center of Taos into an active farm and public park.
NFO purchased the 28-acre property, known locally as the “Mitchell Pasture” or “Corral No. 5,” in early 2018 with a grant from the LOR Foundation.
Not Forgotten will plant year-round gardens for a farm-to-school program in which veterans and their families will grow food for local school cafeterias. A public walking trail will also be developed along the perimeter of the pasture so the community can stroll through the gardens, enjoy the open space and interact with the farmers working there.
Not Forgotten has led the country in promoting the therapeutic benefits of farming for veterans. By expanding these efforts at the Mitchell Property, Not Forgotten aims to train a new wave of young, able farmers while creating a space that military members and their families can connect with the community at large.
