Access for All
The Santa Fe Children's Museum continously strives to provide access for all in our community. We are concerned that not all children in northern New Mexico have access to our recent virtual programming. To provide hands-on learning for all kids, we’ve been developing a series of Grab-and-Go kits, which include lessons, directions, and materials in a single package, so families can learn and play together!
Partnerships, both established and new, have assisted in the free distribution of these kits!
Local Partners Railyard Park Conservancy, Alas de Agua Art Collective, Communities in Schools, Northern Youth Project, and Santa Fe Indian Center have helped give nearly 600 kits to rural communities in northern New Mexico, indigenous families in urban areas, and Southside students. Many of the kits also included an art component contributed by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. In the coming weeks, we will disseminate 500 “Space Science” kits a day, for a total of 2500 kits through the Community Educators Network and the City of Santa Fe Summer Youth and Teen Program.
Garden for Climate Victory
Climate Victory Gardens reference the Victory Garden movement in the 1940s. They present an opportunity to produce healthy, local food and action against climate change. A Climate Victory Garden is grounded in the carbon-sucking principles of regenerative agriculture.
Victory Garden Kits ave been developed with curriculum from New Mexico Healthy Soil Working Group and seed packets from Lowe’s.
