Backyard Farming Buzz

Introducing Backyard Farming Buzz from Bernalillo County Open Space and Gutierrez-Hubbell House!
Until we can garden together again in person, Backyard Farming Buzz will bring regular updates to help you schedule and plan your late summer and fall garden activities. Look for the sunflower and bee picture (see bee-low) on the Bernalillo County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Facebook page for weather, planting, and planning tips. Let us know what kinds of gardening support would be helpful to you.
