Garden in the Park with the Yardmasters!

The Railyard Park and Plaza’s design responds to the history and climate of Santa Fe by using a combination of native plants, historic food plants and well-adapted ornamental plants. Our volunteer gardeners are the human toolkit that keeps our park green and growing.

Keeping the Railyard Park On Track

If you are, or someone else you know is, looking to learn about high desert plants or interested in keeping Santa Fe’s favorite public space vibrant and beautiful – come garden in the Park with the Railyard Yardmasters. We are looking for people who can give a little bit of their time, to help Railyard Park Conservancy keep the Railyard Park on track. There are many incentives to being a Yardmaster including free training and workshops, the intangible reward of enriching the visitor’s experience of the Railyard Park, and dedication awards.

No prior experience or knowledge is necessary! Each workday includes a brief educational introduction and supervised by a knowledgeable member of Railyard Park Conservancy.
