Guest Column: New partnership commits to improving Lobo Gardens

November 26, 2017

A new partnership at the University of New Mexico’s Lobo Gardens is enhancing opportunities for the UNM and Albuquerque communities to learn how the health of our urban communities and natural worlds are connected.

The new collaboration among the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, AmeriCorps VISTA, UNM’s STEAMLabs, the Community Engaged Learning and Research Office and the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies increases the resources and enhances the focus of Lobo Gardens, which was first established in 2010.

“From the start, Lobo Gardens has been dedicated to creating spaces for learning, reflection and collaborative action around sustainability, food equity, community and environmental diversity and human and planetary health,” said Tema Milstein, one of the founders of Lobo Gardens and associate professor in the Geography & Environmental Studies Department.
