Traditional Agricultural Practices in Taos

The Taos County Historical Society announces its next public program ”Traditional Agricultural Practices in Taos,” by Miguel Santistevan on June 4, 2022, at 2 pm. Miguel Santistevan is dedicated to the conservation of traditional agricultural practices, seeds, and the acequia system.

The presenter is a multi-generational farmer, musician, and educator whose livelihood depends upon the ancient acequia system that carries precious water to his crops at Sol Feliz Farms. He maintains a blog at solfelizfarms.wordpress.com. Learn about pre-pueblo, pueblo, acequias, and modern agricultural practices. New Mexico and Taos eventually experienced changes with modernization, often interrupting traditional agricultural practices as land shifted to offer other food products.

This program will be held in the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative Boardroom at 118 Cruz Alta Road, Taos, New Mexico. Admission is free to members of the Society with a suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members. Visit the Society’s website, www.taoscountyhistoricalsociety.org for further information.
