Frankie’s Well

Frankie

Today Valle Encantado (VE) and Frankie launch our campaign to raise $7,500 to dig a well, install a pump, and build a fence around our newest farming site on Five Points Road. The land was loaned to us by the Center for Action and Contemplation, a nonprofit organization in Atrisco that equips people to work for peaceful change throughout the world.

The land has been cleared, and the rows are ready. All that’s missing is you.

Watch the video to learn more about Frankie, the new site, and Valle Encantado’s work in Atrisco.
