Mikaela and Ernesto made us feel at home and provided good suggestions on what we might want to see in Albuquerque. You will need a good mat as camping is on the gravel - we were leant one of theirs.

Response from Michaela, the Host, on May 28th, 2018

Thanks for coming, you both are wonderful guests, loved having you. This is a working Urban Permaculture Organic Garden . We use a very traditional ( Old School Native / Hispanic ) way of watering / flooding ( Acequia) . We have folks camp in a zone away from the wet zone / watering zone. So tents don't get damp or wet. The two side areas, also give a " private " zones as well as their own gates to get in and out toward the parking areas. We always offer, items, which folks may need or have forgotten. We have many helpful things, not everything, but a lot since we ourselves are campers . We have extra pillows, blankets , sheets , lights, mats, a tent or two, sunblock , towels , soap , shampoo , and much ,. much more. We love hosting , so fun, we meet and greet the best folks from the whole world !
