The Northern New Mexico College ¡Sostenga! Farm will hold its 10th Annual Garlic Harvest Festival on Saturday, July 1st from 7 am to 12 pm.
The festival marks one of the season’s first harvests and brings the community together in celebration of the traditional agricultural practices utilized on the ¡Sostenga! Farm.
It also highlights the culture and history of farming in northern New Mexico with a focus on traditional Hispano and Native American farming techniques, sustainable agriculture, and food justice.
Former lieutenant governor Roberto Mondragon will host this year’s event, which will feature music by El Trio Mondragon, Desert Loops, David Garcia & Jeremiah Martinez, in addition to Imperial Rooster.
There will also be a garlic harvest contest with $300/$200/$100 cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively.
The event will culminate with a tractor show to celebrate northern New Mexico farmers and their trusty steeds.
Please join the Northern New Mexico College ¡Sostenga! Farm in celebrating the festival’s milestone 10th year, and keeping the agricultural traditions of the region alive.
¡Sostenga! supports projects that foster sustainable living through hands-on learning and economic development.
The farm’s work is based on the premise that healthy food has long been a tradition of Northern New Mexico, and only in recent decades have generations moved away from the natural agriculture and land-based heritage of this area.
¡Sostenga! was established in 2007 by the New Mexico Legislature to serve as a center for collaboration and research for preserving northern New Mexico's natural heritage, and to be a vehicle to develop regional partnerships and community based participatory research, in the interest of community based food heritage preservation.

The three Northern programs are not currently offered by the HEC’s other partner institutions, and will enhance bachelor’s degree options for students in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas.
“NNMC faculty and staff are very excited to partner with HEC. Through this partnership, Santa Fe students will have access to affordable, high quality, and nationally accredited baccalaureate programs that wouldn't otherwise be offered locally,” said Northern’s Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Ivan Lopez.
Northern’s President Rick Bailey echoed the enthusiasm of his provost, and said, “Northern is honored to be partnering with Santa Fe Community College in this endeavor. Our offerings at the HEC will allow students in Northern New Mexico more flexible, affordable, quality options.”
Northern’s Bachelor of Information Engineering Technology (IET) program is nationally accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET. It is also one of the most affordable engineering degrees in the U.S. Southwest.
The Bachelor of Business Administration/Project Management program is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

The Center offers students the opportunity to work towards a bachelor’s degree from Northern New Mexico College, New Mexico Highlands University, the Institute of American Indian Arts, New Mexico State University or the University of New Mexico, while remaining in Santa Fe.
Registration for all three Northern programs at HEC for the Fall 2017 semester is currently open.
