Glenna Dean, archaeobotanist and former New Mexico State Archaeologist will make a power point talk on Archaic Rock Mulch Gardens. She will introduce us to the archaic gardens around Abiquiu and tell us about what they were planting and how they cultivated the dry gardens in our area around the twelfth century. Enjoy some hot drinks and treats and stay to watch a video about Bandelier National Monument.
