Cultivate, Grow, Thrive: Resilience Garden

Earth Day week is the perfect time to talk about the Resilience Garden, our outdoor living exhibit with hands-on learning opportunities. The garden is where we practice traditional Pueblo farming techniques, celebrate renewal, and cultivate heirloom seeds and indigenous crops. From planting season through harvest, our Resilience Garden is home to our monthly Seasons of Growth learning series.

Seasons of Growth is a program where participants can experience hands-on learning guided by IPCC’s Cultural Education staff and expert guests, giving participants a greater understanding and appreciation of history, culture, and the ecology of Pueblo lands.

Participants learn the principles and techniques of Pueblo agriculture, the history of indigenous crops, how to attract pollinators to gardens, practice sustainability, and care for and protect heirloom crops. Numerous activities include waffle garden construction, making seed balls and seed paper, creating dyes from vegetable scraps, making salsa from your garden ingredients, and taking home seeds and starter plants.

Cultivate your knowledge. Grow your skills. Connect with nature.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot in advance by emailing learn@indianpueblo.org.

    Hello! Are the resilience garden workshops at the IPCC garden or online until shelter-in-place is lifted? Thank you.

    Our Seasons of Growth learning series is temporarily on hold while New Mexico is still under shelter-in-place status. We expect to resume programming as soon as that status is lifted.
