The Open Space Alliance is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of the Open Space Gift Shop. Please visit the shop on April 26/27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is located in the peaceful Open Space Visitor Center, 6500 Coors NW (access by Bosque Meadows Rd. between Montano and Paseo del Norte) on the east side of Coors.

The Open Space Gift Shop promises to offer gifts beyond the ordinary and tied to our devotion to open space and the natural world. Guidebooks, animal puppets, hats and supplies for the trail, the work of local artists as well as Open Space Farms Honey and Compost are among the starting inventory.

Proceeds from the Gift Shop will go to support the Albuquerque Open Space Division.

Food forests are designed by mimicking the interactions and relationships found in natural forest environments.  They provide food and community resources.  Invest in a new way of growing and learn skills to implement at home.
