Food Planning & Policy

La Semilla has been instrumental in ensuring that good food is given proper consideration in public comprehensive and strategic planning processes. We help advocate for local policies that make sense — that help address hunger and food access concerns while creating local economic opportunities. The program fosters the growth of local food system activists, advocates, and champions.

La Semilla understands that informed community and institutional partners are essential to creating positive change and impact. We cultivate relationships and strengthen networks rooted in mutual learning and collaboration, facilitating coalitions like the Mesilla Valley Food Policy Council that advocate for public policies and planning strategies that promote equitable access to good food for all people, ultimately building healthy and happy communities.

Make a commitment to invest in growing a new generation of farmers, food activists, and engaged citizens! Help support our vision for a healthy, sustainable, and fair food system by volunteering & donating today.
