Last fall, La Semilla, the food policy council, and the City of Las Cruces partnered to launch Adopt-a-Pot. We’re putting urban agriculture into practice and planting edibles in the large planters along downtown Main Street. Now’s your chance to help create an edible landscape downtown!
The city will provide flowers for a pop of color and possibly some herbs. La Semilla will be providing seeds. If you are able, please bring vegetable and herb transplants. Any donations are greatly appreciated – you can hang around and plant your own planter or you can just drop off transplants. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
