Lama Community Farm
Started by school children in 2007, the Lama Community Farm CSA (LCF) has grown to provide for a host of farmers both young and old. The farm now includes two acres of intensive vegetables, a large orchard, and a 1,000 sq/ft tomato house. The farm feeds middle-scholars, summer campers, the art center, neighbor shareholders, and customers from the Taos area.
In a uniquely symbiotic relationship, Roots and Wings students and community members plant the farm in the spring, campers care for the crops all summer, and the school returns to harvest during the fall semester. Campers prepare camp meals with the pick of the day and tend a bustling booth at the Taos Farmers’ Market. RWCS Students harvest, prepare and preserve food within the school’s curriculum and bring shares home for the family table.
