Our tribute to Earth Day and spring is this photo of a tree blooming in the the Santa Fe Railyard. What better way to celebrate Mother Nature than with the rebirth spring brings each year. Even in the high dessert, we get colorful blossoms.

Continuing with the Earth Day theme, the Railyard is home to the Santa Fe Farmers Market, the place where local farmers and artisanal food producers come to sell their wares. It’s a model of sustainability. There’s something very organic and uplifting about meeting the people who grew or produced your food. Much of what is sold here supports the earth through sustainable methods. and is free of chemical fertilizer and unnatural pesticides. Shoppers will discover heirloom plants not found in the market that keep historical farming traditions alive. Because the food is close to market less energy is used to get it there. The ecological benefits go on and on. Support fresh and local; shop here.

      And as you know- there’s not much native color here- it’s mostly been imported in recent times.
