Hello to all my fellow New Mexico Acequia Association members. I am proud to announce that I have been accepted into the FoodCorps Service. The goal of FoodCorps is to give America's youth knowledge, engagement, and access to healthy food. As we all know, there would be no food without water.
I will be working closely with the NMAA to bring education of the acequias and our watershed to the Peñasco Independent Schools. Working with the youth and presenting information about acequias is a huge part in handing down the tradition to keep it alive.
I would like to thank the New Mexico Acequia Association and all my fellow members for the support and inspiration you all give me. !Que Vivan las Acequias!
