Centuries ago, Ancestral Puebloans settled and farmed the land near what is now Alcalde, establishing two nearby pueblos. Now, at New Mexico’s newest designated historic property north of Española, the Los Luceros Grain Team is working to bring back the region’s ancient, heirloom, and local grains. Los Luceros ranch, which was purchased by the state in 2008, is home to a 1,000-tree apple orchard and a flock of churro sheep, and the Grain Team is now adding fields of crops such as Sonoran White and Turkey Red wheat, Opopeo amaranth, and Tibetan Purple barley. Learn more about the program to revive this culinary history with Slow Food Santa Fe at a presentation and tasting by the Los Luceros Grain Team at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. Tickets are $30, and the event is held on the second floor of the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (108 Cathedral Place). For tickets and more information, go to slowfoodsantafe.org.
