Revitalization, Realignment, and Reemergence: A project proposal for the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute Farm Program

Utilizing concepts from horticultural therapy, community-based social work, and vocational training and rehabilitation, this proposal will produce several deliverables designed to transform the farm and the treatment paradigm of the programs at NMBHI. The primary theory base will be situated in sustainable agroecology and food justice so that the economic, social, and environmental aspects of the people, cultures, and land will be prioritized and protected.
