Bio:

Our land, and our connection to it, is disappearing. Whether rural or urban, there’s a constant struggle between conserving and developing a rich and beautiful piece of land. Fortunately, the property that was the Polston Elementary school has become the Rio Grande Farm Park, formerly the Healthy Living Park. As it is now … folks can stroll across the Rio Grande from downtown across a pedestrian bridge. From there, they can take a lot of trails to view the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains, watch water fowl, and breathe fresh, clear air. During the summer, you can watch the progress of crops grown by the Guatemalan community using traditional Mayan farming techniques and explore the apple orchard that was planted last summer. Frequently, groups of volunteers gather to improve and enjoy the land.
