Casa San Ysidro Heritage Field Irrigation

Agriculture has been an integral part of the way of life in the Village of Corrales for centuries. Water has been both a precious resource for farmers and a destructive force to the village when the river floods. Corrales' acequia, or irrigation ditch, was dug in the early 18th century to guide irrigation water throughout the village. Casa San Ysidro’s Heritage Field is a 2.38 acre agricultural strip of farm land with appurtenant irrigation water rights through the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District. The field is now in production of native species like Mexican Hat and Milkweed for habitat restoration and will soon feature field exhibitions of community gardens, spice and herb gardens, and dye plant gardens.
