Land Arts of the American West and Art & Ecology students at the University of New Mexico present their public art + agroecology project at the Albuquerque Museum called A Garden. This art space was started in 2018 as a site for community events and experimental art and ecology creations. The project cultivates relationships between soil, plants, and animals with the greater Albuquerque community.

In 2021, A Garden was formed around a series of creative research processes focused on the concept of nourishment and healing for community and land. Students engaged in an embodied site analysis and generated designs. They then worked collaboratively to weave these together into their final public Art + Agroecology project. The project includes a variety of plant habitats and site furnishings welcoming people and more-than-human creatures to share this space and cultivate nourishment.
