Valle Encantado

Valle Encantado is a community-based nonprofit organization in the historic Atrisco neighborhood in the South Valley of Albuquerque. Established in 2008 by community residents, Valle Encantado is committed to sustainable economic development done in harmony with the identity of the community. One of its main programs includes a weatherization program which has leveraged federal stimulus funds to update nearly 40 homes in Bernalillo County while connecting unemployed workers with good weatherization jobs. Other initiatives include a partnership with the USDA on a community agriculture and nutrition program to create a self-sustaining community farm whose salad greens will be sold to Albuquerque Public Schools and a community creativity and history program that records oral histories and organizes workshops.
