Farm to School

We are delighted to have received renewed support from the Nirvana Maņana Institute towards Farm to School Educational Activities in 2013!  In years past, this support has allowed Farm to Table to provide trainings and direct resources to Farm to School related projects; to-date totaling $26,000 to 32 projects throughout New Mexico!

 






Attention Chefs and Farmers:
 
Farm to Restaurant will be hosting our annual production-planning meeting on Wednesday, February 20th. If you've been thinking about participating in Farm to Restaurant, this is a great way to get started. For more information, please contact Nina.
