First Report on Dragon Farm's Mentee Sites--Santa Barbara/Martineztown Community Learning Center & Martineztown House of Neighborly Service

Through the Albuquerque Community Learning Centers Project (ACLCP), schools in Santa Barbara/Martineztown will provide an inter-generational connection between young children and highschoolers and offere opportunities for older youth to develop leadership skills and modeling behaviors.  The SBMLC is collaborating directly with New Heart to develop a youth gardening initiative.  The Martineztown House of Neighborly Service will also participate in the project through their youth-run garden.

The Garden at the Santa Barbara Martineztown learning Center flows from the murals on the walls.

Typical New Mexican box gardens with a hint of color to make them festive
