Our Land: Clean Water Rules

Our Land Clean Waters Rule

February 8, 2019 – In an arid state like New Mexico, all of our waters are critically important. Even the smallest streams and most remote wetlands. This month for Our Land, Laura Paskus takes is from high in the Sandia Mountains to down along the Middle Rio Grande to learn about why “temporary” waterways are so important – and also why they’re at increased risk.

Our Land: Project Feed The Hood

1202 Our Land Feed the Hood

December 14, 2018 – Project Feed the Hood is a food justice program in Albuquerque that connects communities with healthy food and young people with the land (and a paycheck). Begun out of the Southwest Organizing Project, a 38-year old nonprofit focused on social justice, Project Feed the Hood has a community garden not far from the Albuquerque Sunport, the Ilsa and Rey Garduño Community Garden, and pilot programs at ten schools, including Van Buren Middle School, where co-founder Travis McKenzie teaches.

On this month’s repeat episode of Our Land, we visit with McKenzie, SWOP members, student interns and McKenzie’s mentor, South Valley farmer Lorenzo Candelaria.
