Love letters to a Desert Garden (1).png

A newsletter for the contemplative gardener.

Love Letters to a Desert Garden is a newsletter unearthing wonder from the aridlands of New Mexico. It features stories of plants, sometimes offering tips on growing or cooking those plants, and sometimes simply witnessing their beauty. It’s a rumination on place and inter-being, a celebration of ever-present abundance. 

Throughout the growing season, these Letters will document experiments with many techniques of plastic-free gardening. One of these sections uses only rainwater and ollas, another combines sunken “waffle” beds with ollas, and another uses traditional acequia irrigation with deep attention to soil-building, shading, and microclimates. This simple, daunting decision of using no plastic in the garden touches on many far-reaching issues facing contemporary agriculture and gardening. Learn more as the season goes here
