I want to see a park with edible fruit trees where people can stop off for a snack. I want to see a park where our youth are involved. I know there has been a talk about a lot of agricultural activities. But let’s make sure that is kid focused. I’d love it if there was an after school agricultural club where the kids can take those veggies home, maybe sell them at the market.” – Anonymous, Town of Taos
