Food@100%: Innovation 8
Supporting Cities and Counties
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project 1: The “research what cities and counties can do to increase food security” project
Through research, identify innovations that you can bring to your county as well as existing programs that might benefit from county support. We suggest you research the following: Farm Gardens in Parks, Urban Farming and Food Production in Parks, Create Community Gardens and Urban Agriculture. Two very effective programs are also taking place in Las Cruces, New Mexico: La Semilla and Casa De Peregrinos Food Program.
