Business Plan

Read the entire Rio Grande Farm Park Business Plan: 2016 March (1.2 MB .pdf)

The Rio Grande Farm Park (RGFP) is an autonomous program of the San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition (SLVLFC), a private nonprofit organization whose mission is to “foster an equitable local food system that restores the health of the people, community, economy and ecosystem.”

Housed originally as a LiveWell site at a local community health center, SLVLFC became a 501c3 non-profit in 2011. After several years of concerted effort, the Rio Grande Farm Park initiative was formalized under the SLVLFC umbrella. A diverse group of community members make up the RGFP Committee, overseeing its development.

The vision for this innovative multi-use park is to preserve the SLV’s important agricultural heritage, precious water resources, and open public spaces, while simultaneously creating economic development, healthy living, and educational and recreational opportunities for community members. With the assistance of the Trust for Public Land and tremendous community input, the Master Plan for the Park has recently been completed, which will inform and animate this vision. A key initial focus is a new farmer incubator program, as well as a working farm that provides education, research, and access to land for market production.



RGFP is a 1% For The Planet non-profit

Rio Grande Farm Park added an event.

Care for the planet and get your hands in the dirt this Earth Day! We have partnered with Alamosa Rotary Club and Milagros Coffee House to celebrate this special day by planting trees around the park, enjoying a picnic of local fare, and grooving to live music. There will be kids activities too; so bring the whole family!

Please dress for the weather and wear sunscreen.

If you are unable to attend this event, consider becoming a friend of the Rio Grande Farm Park: riograndefarmpark.org/friends-of/.
