<<Loose Parts Play>> By Wemagination
The Family Development Program integrates learning opportunities for teachers and parents, along with others who care about children, that is deeply rooted in each child’s unique cultural heritage. We work to build a common language of how young children learn that is well-informed by state-of-the-art research in child development. One way we do this is through our resource center, Wemagination, and by employing loose parts theory. What are Loose Parts? Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials. Loose parts can be natural or synthetic.

LOVE day at the Rail Yards Market: SUNday sept 9th, 2018 10a-2p

Choose love! Sprinkle it everywhere! Celebrate genuine connection with each other and build community at the Rail Yards Market for our 5th Annual Love Day on September 9, 2018! We humbly and gratefully welcome our loving community partner, Native Health Initiative, back to the yards.

Loving service is giving without expecting anything in return. Loving service is NHI’s method for addressing inequities, and serves as their primary funding source.
Why do we choose loving service: 
1) It is a return to an Indigenous currency, one where money is not central, but instead one's sincerity and goodness toward others is most valued. 
2) It inspires a human-to-human element to our work, a communal ethic that minimizes the ego and maximizes all of the qualities we hope to amplify in our partnership (caring for one another, kindness, honesty, trust, ) 
3) It builds on the strength of Indigenous communities, and helps to educate our volunteers, our partner organizations, and academic and governmental institutions about this aspect of these communities.

NHI was created in 2004, where several respected Tribal health leaders, health lay workers, faith-based leaders and health profession students sat down to discuss how to build community partnership. In 2005, NHI began work as a student organization. Now in its 11th year, NHI is a non-profit partnership that addresses health inquities through Loving Service (a human-to-human element of wanting to serve others, volunteerism).

NHI is unique because…
We work with the rural and urban American Indian community members, organizations, programs in the U.S. that is run by the Tribes working with health professions students.
>Health projects are created by and run by Tribal communities and their leaders
>95% funded by loving service, and only 5% by monetary donations

Rail Yards market LAYS TRACKS: SET to rE-OPEN MAY 2018

All aboard! The Rail Yards Market of Albuquerque, a non-profit project presented by the Barelas Community Coalition is slated to re-open on May 6th, 2018. The market will bloom into its fifth year since opening in 2014, and hosts over 100 vendors of fresh produce, fine food, healing hands, and handmade art. Spring couldn't be here fast enough, as farms, foodies, artisans, and organizers chug along to prepare the finest Growers' Market experience for locals and tourists alike. 


Farmers are hard at work sowing seeds, food entrepreneurs are preparing recipe and testing products, and the off-season couldn't be more busy for market staff.  While many hibernate in the winter, the Rail Yards Market dispels the myths of winter rest. Winter and early Spring are intense times of planning, and staff haven't rested too much since the famous Holiday Market in December that they put in collaboration with Downtown Growers' Market. The Holiday Market hosted over 28,000 visitors, and required 23 staff and 52 volunteers to operate the event for a weekend. "We're still glowing from last seasons' markets," said Alaska Piper, Manager, "Although Summer is when we really shine, we are endlessly busy in the off-season processing applications, scheduling programming, and planning logistics for the current season."  The market has received and sent over two hundred Vendor applications through a community jury grading process already, and will announce all this seasons' farmers, food makers, healers and artisan vendors in the Spring of 2018. Although non-food applications closed on February 1st, the market is still accepting local Growers and Food Businesses.

"Our moto is 'All Aboard', and we mean it;" said Piper, "I love being a part of a community treasure where everyone can participate". The market not only offers the tastiest produce, treats and one-of-a-kind finds from local Vendors, but is so much more than your typical Farmers' Market; the Rail Yards plans to expand Arts & Educational programming this year through more live demonstrations and learning opportunities, and hosts different musical, dance, and poetry performances too. The market recruits local educators, artisans, and musicians to demonstrate skills and play at the market all season long, and also collaborates with local organizations and non-profits to program special theme-days and events including Intergalactic, Red-or-Green, and Super Hero day! Overwhelmed with all the selection, and don't know what to eat? Stop by the Info Booth, and grab a local meal kit from their "Rail Yards Recipe" box program. The meal boxes include mostly local ingredients from New Mexico Growers and a colorful recipe card with instructions to make a home-cooked meal for two. The market is free and open to the public, and accepts SNAP/EBT benefits, and even doubles EBT money so users can get twice the amount to spend on local NM-grown fruits and vegetables. 

Catch all the flavors, fun, sounds, under one historic roof at the Albuquerque Rail Yards 10am-2pm on Sundays during May through October.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Rail Yards Market, in partnership with the City of Albuquerque’s Urban Enhancement Trust Fund Grant, announces an open call to artists to be considered for a mural commission at the Rail Yards Market’s shipping container. The artist(s) will be expected to paint the mural live during market hours during the Holiday Market December 9th & 10th, 2017.

THEME/CONTENT: The mural theme is “Honoring traditions: Building Innovation” and should emphasize New Mexican’s colorful and diverse culture and traditions, Rail Road history and/or align with the mission of the Rail Yards Market of creating a dynamic hub for our agricultural and creative communities, and collaborating and preserving the legacy of the historic Barelas neighborhood. No proposals depicting profanity, nudity nor violence will be accepted. This prominent project will be an iconic addition to all of the community events held at the Blacksmith Shop, and it should be noted that the strongest proposals will include themes or content that can be appreciated by a City-wide audience, and need not be Farmers’ Market focused.

As you can imagine, this is a very slow and methodical way of working.  "This process provides me the time to interact with the client longer and in a more intentional manner" says Kevin, "it is just challenging enough with the chemistry and methods to be interesting and possible."  This one-of-a-kind image has no negative, so conventional paper prints cannot be mass produced!

More about NHI:
NHI was created in 2004, where several respected Tribal health leaders, health lay workers, faith-based leaders and health profession students sat down to discuss how to build community partnership. In 2005, NHI began work as a student organization. Now in its 11th year, NHI is a non-profit partnership that addresses health inquities through Loving Service (a human-to-human element of wanting to serve others, volunteerism).

NHI is unique because…
We work with the rural and urban American Indian community members, organizations, programs in the U.S. that is run by the Tribes working with health professions students.
>Health projects are created by and run by Tribal communities and their leaders
>95% funded by loving service, and only 5% by monetary donations

Why do we choose loving service: 1) It is a return to an Indigenous currency, one where money is not central, but instead one's sincerity and goodness toward others is most valued. 2) It inspires a human-to-human element to our work, a communal ethic that minimizes the ego and maximizes all of the qualities we hope to amplify in our partnership (caring for one another, kindness, honesty, trust, ) 3) It builds on the strength of Indigenous communities, and helps to educate our volunteers, our partner organizations, and academic and governmental institutions about this aspect of these communities.

"On a former dairy farm just a few miles south of New Mexico’s largest metropolitan area, the refuge fulfills the goals of President Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative to work with community partners to establish a 21st century conservation ethic and reconnect people, especially young people, to the natural world. The new refuge was established due to the partnership efforts of many in the community that recognized the importance of having a wildlife refuge in this urban setting.

Valle de Oro offers a unique environmental education and recreation opportunity in a highly populated area while promoting a wildlife conservation message. It is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a national network of lands and waters managed for the benefit of wildlife, habitat and you."

Our agricultural network in New Mexico is superbly powerful and bountiful and contributes to a growing and flowing history of the Rio Grande basin. Positive change starts from within, and you have the power to transform our world by making sustainable choices and progress in your community. 

We expect all of the burque heroes to be in full effect THIS SUNDAY from 10am-2pm!

Ingredients are pre-portioned, and recipes are designed to create a hearty and healthy meal for two. Eating local is easy and affordable with Rail Yards Recipes!

HELP RYM CREATE COOL SEATING!

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALs

Can you make some cool, green, seating to power-up place-making at the Rail Yards Market? See our request for proposals to do just that...

Greetings Local Maker!  To power-up our placemaking initiatives, The Rail Yards Market is seeking creative makers to design and construct some mobile seating elements for our Sunday event.

Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well being (definition from wikipedia).

Right now, we are requesting one design and prototype to be created and beta-tested by each applicant. We are awaiting a possible grant award in late May, and if awarded, a panel will choose our favorite design, and would like to pursue constructing more of the units. Anyone can apply, and we encourage local neighborhood residents to submit design proposals!

Design proposals are due by April 15th, and should be emailed to RailYardsMarket@gmail.com. Designs should include a sketch or image of idea, and a budget breakdown of how much each unit would cost. 

Read our full RFP here.
