Water. Arid Places. Conserve. Harvest.

Querencia Green is a community program in Albuquerque, New Mexico that celebrates water harvesting projects and programs that lead to community resilience. This website describes rainwater harvesting and green infrastructure projects in the mid Rio Grande region and beyond.
The idea of querencia, a sense of affection and care for place, provides inspiration to re-connect water to land and people to place.
