Taking the Lead in New Farmer Training
The 2013 season at the Sostenga Farm is underway! Led by Don Bustos, AFSC Director and Jennie London as the Lead Farm Trainer, the AFSC farmer training program has partnered with Northern New Mexico College ¡Sostenga! Center and area family farms. Each year five community community members who want to be farmers are invited into the year long program, from January through December. The primary training site is at the ¡Sostenga! Farm at Northern New Mexico College on Railroad Avenue in the beautiful Española Valley.

The Sostenga Center at Northern New Mexico College is a non-profit, student and community based program established under the Northern New Mexico College Foundation. Donors to the Sostenga Center receive recognition at the annual Garlic Harvest Festival and at the Sostenga website. Donors also receive documentation of contributions for tax purposes, as well as periodic updates of the program.
Currently the Sostenga Center is seeking volunteers and donations. The Center is also looking for a moped or scooter for on-campus food deliveries.
