Juliana is co-founder of Reunity Resources and Reunity Farm, a community farm located in Agua Fria Village, Santa Fe, New Mexico. She grows vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers following regenerative and organic farming standards.
Reunity Farm emphasizes access to local foods by donating produce to community hunger efforts annually and operating a neighborhood farm stand ten hours a week. They also host field trips, volunteer groups, and workshops.
In response to the covid-19 crisis, Reunity is furthering their collaborations to fill in gaps in hunger support systems available in Santa Fe. Partner organization Communities in Schools has identified over 150 families in need of food resources and unable to access what is currently available due to the challenges of working an essential job and having children at home full-time. Communities in Schools is concerned that these already vulnerable children and families will suffer more duress and anguish if we cannot support their basic essential needs.
The highest need is for nutrient-dense ready-to-eat meals, and Reunity Resources is pivoting a higher percentage of farm fresh food towards donations to serve these families. Juliana has organized a coalition with restaurant partner Cafecito to turn fresh farm foods into delicious and ready-to-eat meals that can be added to the weekly distribution route.
Reunity Farm offers online ordering and purchasing of farm produce for pick up during Farm Stand Hours (Tuesdays from 3-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) or for delivery. Farm Stand officially opens for the season on May 19, and Farm Card holders and members will receive first notice about pop-up farm stands happening sooner.
