Farm & Table, Sol Harvest Farm and La Parada are celebrating the changing of the seasons in our amazing world this week, during the Summer Solstice on Wednesday the 20th. To mark the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, we'll be celebrating from dawn 'til dusk on the farm, at the shop and in our restaurant. Come early for sunrise yoga. Be a part of the farm's community harvest in the morning or go on a field walk with Farmer Ric in the evening. Write, paint, or find your own way to draw inspiration from the solstice all day long.

Bring your sketchbook, your notepad, your easel or just your imagination. Come join Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, and take advantage of our outdoors to draw inspiration from the solstice. The field is open all day long, so spend the whole day with us, or just a few hours.
