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. Farmers will receive training in agricultural and marketing skills as well as have the opportunity to try out farming with support from the Farm Park staff. The Farm Park encourages low-income individuals, young farmers, and veterans to apply.
Family Garden Plot: Families and individuals are encouraged to apply for 1/8 of an acre plots. There will be no fee for use of these plots during 2017. However, each household, or his/her designee, will be asked to volunteer to work for a total of six (6) hours on manager-assigned projects at the RGFP.
Commercial Garden Plot: Anyone who is interested in selling their produce commercial via Alamosa Farmers’ Markets, the Valley Roots Food Hub, or other marketplaces should apply for a Commercial Garden Plot. These plots are rented out in 1/4 acre increments. Please contact us for price details.
