The MESA Project will protect the environment around Las Cruces, NM, by reforming agricultural practices. MESA will design and build a model farm to demonstrate and disseminate sustainable agricultural techniques, and at this farm, culinary artists will use local ingredients to create a series of carefully curated meals for local farmers. During the meals, agricultural scientists will teach a broad spectrum of locally customized strategies for economically and environmentally sustainable agriculture.
