Our Mission

MVHAL’s mission is to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for the people of the Mimbres Region (defined as the communities that lie along and around NM State Hwy 61 and 35) by supporting local programs that promote healthy food for all, community bonding, and improved access to health care—in particular for our elderly and very young. Scroll down to see the wonderful projects we support!

A Brief History

MVHAL was established in 2002 with the help of Hildago Medical Service (HMS) and local residents interested in enhancing the quality of life in the Mimbres Valley through locally-based programs focused on health and well-being for all ages. MVHAL meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month. 

Our Programs

Mimbres Messenger Monthly Newspaper

The Mimbres Messenger is the monthly “written voice” of the goings-on in our valley.  It’s an invaluable resource for reporting what has happened, what to see, and what’s coming up the month ahead. This month’s issue and all back issues, going back to April 2014, are available at the link below.

More Info

Mimbres Food Distribution

MVHAL has been a part of the monthly food distribution program to households in the valley since its inception in 2004. We partner with the Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico

Mimbres Farmers Market

The Mimbres Valley Farmers’ Market provides an outlet for growers to sell fresh and nutritious locally grown food to their neighbors.  The Market fosters direct connections and bonds between farmers and shoppers.

More Info

Mimbres Valley Harvest Festival

The Mimbres Valley Harvest Festival is held each autumn and is a way to bring our community together. The Festival showcases locally grown food, local artisans, and handmade products. Thanks to Covid-19, in 2020 and 2021, the festival did not happen.

We are happy to say, the Mimbres Harvest Festival is back! 2022 was a great festival, and 2023 should be even better.


San Lorenzo Elementary School Garden and Greenhouse

Here in the Valley, we are very proud of our AAA-rated San Lorenzo Elementary School and its garden and greenhouse. The San Lo Garden and Greenhouse has a long history of community growth and involvement
