An Acequia Aqui Featured Artist, Sponsored by the LOR Foundation
A film documenting the first irrigation utilizing the acequia system on a small scale farm.
When we moved to our new home, we were excited to utilize the acequia system for small scale farming. We have been able to refine our garden and have been actively producing produce. I have felt a strong urge to farm for some time now and have been experimenting with ways of bringing food/food production into my work.
