A few ways we come together
We’ve created many avenues for folks to engage with NMCEWL! Across all of our gatherings, we provide a safe space for people to engage with other landowners, connect with NMCEWL fellows, and collaborate with coalition organizations with deeper expertise in different areas of conservation. We are excited to engage with network participants, bring attention to working lands, expand collective knowledge, and share stories for deeper engagement. We hope you’ll consider joining us in some of these offerings!
The Summit is a space where we come together, put our words into action, and step into another year of adapting to a changing climate. We explore the places where production, policy, and people intersect to enhance working lands.
Knowledge transfer events
Throughout the warmer months, we enjoy bringing landowners, NMCEWL fellows, and coalition organizations together in-person to expand knowledge, offer training opportunities, and share stories of success and lessons learned.
Our monthly virtual gatherings allow us to easily connect with other landowners and coalition organizations all across New Mexico. We use this space to ask questions, brainstorm, and problem solve. We’d love for you to join us!
Neighborhood Happy Hours
We co-host regular happy hours in Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque. These are unstructured, casual social events. These are great for anyone stewarding land, supporting land stewards, or interested in land stewardship, whether that be gardening, ranching, farming, foraging, or ecological restoration.
Interested in Co-hosting an event?
We love collaborating with our coalition and community partners on co-hosting events. We are always excited to co-organize learning events, happy hours or other family-friendly meet-ups in Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque with community partners. If you are interested in co-hosting a community event, please reach out!
How we work together
Engage network participants
As a collaborative network, we share and increase access to knowledge and resources for New Mexico communities.
Bring attention to working lands
We bring more awareness to ways agricultural producers and land managers can be supported in improving land health, and help bring awareness to the value of working lands.
Expand collective knowledge
We build resilience of New Mexico working lands through peer-to-peer knowledge transfer.
Share stories for deeper engagement
We highlight the diverse efforts of agricultural producers, land and natural resource managers, organizations, and agencies currently engaged in efforts to improve working lands in New Mexico.
Creating spaces for New Mexicans to gather around land stewardship
NMCEWL acknowledges and supports the good work being done on working lands by landowners, stewards, and the organizations supporting them; we help landowners share their stories and connect people to invaluable resources and tool kits throughout New Mexico.
In every aspect of our work, we create spaces for landowners and network participants to gather and share lessons learned around conservation opportunities and stewardship with the land. We also provide professional development and fellowship opportunities. If you are interested in learning more about our work, we’d love to hear from you! We welcome anyone to join our monthly virtual calls and always enjoy seeing new landowners accessing and participating in NMCEWL events and network opportunities.
