NM food, agriculture topic of new joint plan

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico State University and New Mexico First are joining forces on a strategic plan to maintain a resilient food and agricultural system in the state.

The first meeting on the plan will be from 9:30 a.m.-noon Jan. 14 at Route 66 Casino & Hotel west of Albuquerque. A free lunch will be served. Ten additional meetings will be held around the state through March 2016.

“It takes a diverse network of farmers, ranchers, processors, distributors and market organizers to make a difference in the future of agriculture,” said Michael Patrick, NMSU’s Extension specialist. “We’re encouraging anyone interested in this strategic plan to join us to discuss their best ideas for ensuring a robust food and agriculture system in New Mexico.”
