Albuquerque’s Roots: COLORES Special

Air Date Saturday August 27 at 4 p.m. on 5.1


In one of the most agriculturally rich landscapes in New Mexico, Albuquerque has thrived along the Rio Grande for centuries. Albuquerque’s Roots celebrates our local food shed and looks back at how we sustain a rich agricultural practice to this day.

Our local farmers and consumers are actively engaging in sustainability and exploring how a local food supply can be a significant ingredient in the health of a community. Many people are now reclaiming their cultural heritage, farming and gardening are a big part of that movement. Told through the voices of community members this thirty-minute documentary is a personal story that connects the past with the present and shows us how sustenance and sustainability are part of the common thread that connects us all.
