Growing Forward Farm

We acknowledge the land on which San Juan SWCD operates as the traditional lands and home of the Diné, Pueblo, and Ute peoples, who continue to thrive since time immemorial. We recognize their continuing connection to land, waters, and culture, and San Juan SWCD strives to partner and collaborate with local tribes to expand equitable resource conservation to all.
