Indian Pueblo Cultural Center plants traditional foods at garden





The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is planting a garden to educate youth and feed visitors.

Participants in the center's upcoming summer camp will learn more about traditional foods like corns, beans and squash. They will also learn about traditional farming techniques.

The garden has a modern, more commerce-oriented focus as well. The crops will be sold and used at the Pueblo Harvest Café & Bakery.

"This particular project helps us to fulfill our mission in sharing pueblo culture, history, our way of life, not only with our campers but our restaurant patrons,” Travis Suazo, the executive director at IPCC, told The Albuquerque Journal.
