San Ysidro 2013

San Ysidro 2013

AFSC helped organize the annual San Ysidro Day celebration with partners the South Valley Acequia Assoication, La Plazita Institute, and Agri-Cultura Network. This tradition, held in New Mexico for 400 years, celebrates San Ysidro, the patron saint of farmers. The ceremony includes blessings of the land and water by indigenous elders of the Isleta Pueblo, Dine, Red Wolf Clan as well as Catholics and Penitente brothers.

The processions begins at the San Ysidro carousel at the corner of Isleta and Arenal SW and moves to the Sanchez Farm at Arenal and Lopez SW. There will be a light lunch following the ceremony with vegetables grown at the farm.
