Open Space continues in its vision “to be a dynamic network of properties with important natural or cultural resources managed to benefit people, plants and wildlife by protecting and enhancing view sheds, water resources, wildlife habitat, cultural/historic sites, and prime agricultural land; and providing resource-based recreation and environmental education.”

Overview

The purpose of this strategy is to advance Bernalillo County’s economic, environmental, and social well-being through education, public/private partnerships, and public policy recommendations. Desired results from implementing the Cultivating Bernalillo County include:

Enhance Quality of Life – Strengthen County Open Space infrastructure and protect agricultural land to support local food production and preserve the County’s rich agricultural heritage.

Develop Diverse Economic Opportunities – Create a more robust agricultural economy within the County.

Promote Healthier Lifestyles – Provide underserved communities in the County with better food options and education to promote healthier lifestyles.

For this purposes of this initiative, agriculture is defined in the traditional sense as well as “urban agriculture”, which includes cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around, the metropolitan area of Bernalillo County. Examples include community, school, backyard, and rooftop gardens, innovative food-production methods that maximize production in a small area, community supported agriculture based in urban areas, and family farms located in metropolitan greenbelts.

 

Vision

Program vision is to promote a locally-based food and agricultural system on suitable county-owned Open Space properties, and privately-owned properties under an agricultural conservation easement, that advances Bernalillo County’s economic, environmental and social well-being through education, partnerships and public policy recommendations.
