Farm at the Park

New Farmers Wanted

The Rio Grande Farm Park is proud to announce openings in our Farm Incubator program for the Spring of 2017.  Any aspiring farmers are encouraged to secure plots in order to grow produce for themselves, their families, or to sell commercially. There are two program options: Family Plots and Commercial Plots.

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/.
