Backyard Farming Workshops:

All events will take place at the Gutiérrez-Hubbell House from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  As a small correction to the info noted in the above flyer, participants who attend all five sessions will receive a certificate, voucher for deeply discounted rain barrel, and garden swag!

Stay after the program to walk our wooded paths along the madre acequia, or bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it at one of our shaded outdoor tables.  Light refreshments will be on offer for donation before and during the program.

The Backyard Farming Series is a collaboration between Bernalillo County Open Space, the Hubbell House Alliance, and Jen Prosser of Sunstone Herbs
