  • Next Meeting for 100 Women Who Care in Santa Fe is Wed. Feb. 6th at Scottish Rite Temple from 6 – 7 pm.

Sounds insane and actually works! Join as an individual for $100 each time, or as a group ($50 for a two-team or $25 for a four-team).

  • Ken and Judy (KJ Farms) could use your help! Ken’s doctor presented a grim ultimatum: stop farming and vending at the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market or risk very serious health problems, such as being restricted to a wheelchair. For the last 15 years, Ken and Judy have been selling eggs at the Farmers’ Market. Their last market was on January 26. While bills are piling up and every-day needs are harder to meet, their sudden loss of income makes things insurmountably difficult. The Market community is really strong and we can help! Please lend a hand if you can and give a donation. If everyone pitches in even just a little, we can immeasurably make a very hard time a little easier. Click here to donate.
