Giannangelo Farms Southwest is a collection of sustainable formal/patterned raised bed organic gardens located near El Morro National Monument, east of Ramah, in Northwestern New Mexico. We grow in a challenging high altitude (7300') desert environment, requiring a great deal of innovation, and persistence. Our gardens feature perennial and annual culinary kitchen and medicinal herbs - for teas, dried herbs, and potpourri; many varieties of lettuces and salad greens, kale, root vegetables, fruit trees, onions, garlic, perennial and annual flowers, edible flowers, an asparagus bed, trellises, pools, and goldfish ponds. All of the gardens have been planted to encourage wildlife - birds, frogs and toads, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects.
We give SUSTAINABLE ORGANIC GARDENING and CREATIVE ROCKWORK WORKSHOPS throughout the year, and are open to the public for guided GARDEN TOURS year around, with the garden at its height from July through September. We have two greenhouses for growing heat loving plants such as basil, tomatoes, and cucumbers, drying herbs, protecting tender perennials - rosemary, French lavender, Bay Laurel, and providing year around salad greens and kitchen herbs.
