Acequias continue to be the lifeblood of our communities, providing nourishment through locally grown food, economic livelihood and aquifer recharge.
Acequias need your support!
As acequias confront the challenges of an uncertain climate, commodification of water, and other pressures, we also see the resurgence of local agriculture and the need for healthy local produce for our communities. NMAA needs your support to meet these challenges and secure a healthy future for the next generation of acequieros.
NMAA has a comprehensive approach to fulfill our vision of acequias flowing with clean water and people working together to grow food and celebrate our cultural heritage. Our work centers on all aspects of keeping acequias thriving, including: acequia governance, water rights protection, farmer training, leadership development and organizing, policy advocacy, youth engagement, food and seed sovereignty.
