SOIL Sangre de Cristo supports farmers, ranchers and other food producers in our region with zero percent interest loans. Since its founding, SOIL Sangre de Cristo has loaned $20,000 to three farms and ranches in our region to support the local food economy and strengthen its resilience.

Organizers of the January speaker event say that this thought-provoking dialogue followed by group discussion may lead to surprising or different conclusions from what you might assume.
