Does what you eat affect global warming? Are small scaled farmers the new super-heroes? Can growing local organic food save the Earth? Heart & Soil, a 45-minute family documentary, offers hope for our planet. Filmed in the rugged Four Corners Area of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, Heart & Soil has been called "a love song for farmers," those stalwart keepers of the earth who speak with passion on diverse topics including animal husbandry, soil science and climate change. Heart & Soilalso touches on the darker side of agriculture: the corporate extractive systems that produces - not only most of the food we eat - but global warming. Guests are encouraged to bring picnic blankets and dinner for these outdoor film screenings. More details

Coyote Stories

Performance by Jaune Quick-to-See Smith & Neal Ambrose-Smith for Lost and Found
at Gus Wagner Farms Corn Maze, 6445 Corrales Rd, Corrales, 505-459-0719

Map to Maze

Lost and Found, a corn maze created by Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Neal Ambrose-Smith (both Salish from the Salish and Kootenai Nation in Montana) in collaboration with Gus Wagner Farms, integrates images based on ancient Indian glyphs into a field of corn in Corrales. The project connects the corn, the people and the glyphs to commemorate the long standing symbiosis between the birds, the animals and humans in a continuum that has lasted for thousdands of years. Organized by Kathleen Shields Contemporary Art Projects for LAND/ART, presented by 516 ARTS
