Camino de Paz Farm
At Camino de Paz, the farm is fully integrated into the life of the school.
The farm is structured as a teaching center for our students, the local community,and the broader sustainable farming community.
Camino de Paz Farm has market gardens, animal husbandry and processed foods divisions. Sustainability is key to what the farm is about. It means that we are soil builders and water conservers. Beyond the labor of our students and workers, we use as few outside inputs as possible, especially fossil fuels.
Camino de Paz Farm won the New Mexico Organic Farmers Association prize in 2019 for best farm and Edible Santa Fe magazine’s 2014 “Local Hero” award as Best Farm. The “Local Hero” awards are given to adults who are professionals in their field, so for a group of young adolescents to qualify in this group is pretty special.
