New urban garden helps backyard gardeners

NEW MEXICO, Doña Ana SWCD – “Urban agriculture is the focus of a community farm project in the heart of Las Cruces,” said Doña Ana Soil and Water Conservation District (DASWCD) Supervisor Craig Fenske.

Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to participate in the project, Fenske said.

The garden is located on nearly an acre of land owned by First Christian Church that is located across Frenger Street from Frenger Park and behind the church at 1809 El Paseo Road.

DASWCD was the lead partner in obtaining a $50,000 grant from the National Association of Conservation Districts to promote urban agriculture, Fenske said, and that will help pay for development of the Las Cruces urban garden.
