Botanical Garden has lots to offer

The new Santa Fe Botanical Garden on Museum Hill was created to benefit all Santa Fe and New Mexico citizens and our area’s many visitors. The botanical garden is an independent nonprofit, not a part of the four Santa Fe state museums, with a commitment to affordable admission and providing monthly Community Days free for New Mexico residents. The garden’s educational mission raises awareness of critical issues such as water conservation, climate change impact, and responsible gardening practices. With its many native and traditional plants, awe-inspiring stone and metal work, and breathtaking vistas, the botanical garden is the essence of New Mexico.

The garden provides an “outdoor living room” where everyone can connect with nature, marvel at amazing plant varieties, and benefit from a place for contemplation. Visitors can relax under shading ramadas, discover a century-old red bridge and explore the Art Trail, where changing exhibitions of sculpture will encourage return visits. To the hundreds of committed volunteers, creative staff, talented craftsmen, knowledgeable horticulturalist and visionary landscape architect, Gary Smith, I offer my heartfelt appreciation. Together you have created a gift for our community and state that will enrich current and future generations. For more information about the Garden’s Community Days and other programs, visit


Future of KSFR has us concerned

As supporters, volunteers, and former board members of KSFR, we have serious concerns regarding the future of our beloved community, public radio station under the current board of directors.

  • The loss of significant funding related to recent actions and public statements made by the board and current management

We urge our fellow community members to attend an open meeting of the KSFR board today at 9:30 a.m. at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, 501 Halona St. Please join us in our efforts to assure that KSFR continues to serve its constituency, the entire community of northern New Mexico.
