Building Reno Underway
In February 2022 we purchased the R&R Market in San Luis with the vision to turn the market into a community food co-operative. Rennovations are currently underway to the entire building and infrastructure. Look for changes when you visit.
What We Do
Did you say Co-op?
Yes we did. We purchased the old R&R Market with plans to turn it into a full service community food co-operative. A co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative business that’s managed and controlled by the members, with profits returned to the members.
The Acequia Institute is a non-profit grant-making foundation supporting environmental & food justice. Home is a 181-acre acequia farm in Viejo San Acacio, CO and is located on Nuchu - Dinè - Tewa - Genizarx lands and waters.
