COLORADO, Mancos CD – Mancos preschool students have a new garden on site. It’s part of the Montezuma School to Farm Project, a nonprofit that offers hands-on gardening classes to students and schools throughout the county.
This is the 10th year of operation for the Montezuma School to Farm Project, which is a program of the Mancos Conservation District. The group’s partnership with the Mancos School District RE-6A means the district provides the land in kind, and School to Farm leads student lessons and develops the garden area, said PK-5 Principal Cathy Epps.
COLORADO, Mancos CD – The Mancos Town Board unanimously approved a boundary adjustment request by the Mancos Conservation District at the board’s regular meeting Wednesday night.
The district is looking to change the boundary between two of its own adjacent land plats, for a better configuration for future potential projects. The current configuration consists of “two long, skinny lots,” said Town Administrator Heather Alvarez, and the adjustment would divide up the land parcel north-south, rather than east-west.
District Manager Gretchen Rank, representing the Mancos Conservation District, said Wednesday night that they might like to use the space to create affordable housing options for the group’s AmeriCorps employees, who work on a limited stipend.
