Cornucopia Adult Day Services is the only agency in the South valley with a greenhouse program specifically designed to meet the physical, mental, and emotional needs of adults with developmental disabilities and the elderly. Cornucopia clients voluntarily participate in planting, tending, harvesting, packaging, selling, and consuming produce from the greenhouse according to their abilities and choices. The items we grow in our greenhouse change seasonally, but we always have something sprouting. Typically we grow specialty tomatoes, micro greens, and all varieties of flowers, melons, and herbs.
Greenhouse has started a unique partnership with some of Albuquerque’s favorite local restaurants and provides Scalo Northern Italian Grill, Artichoke Cafe, Elaine's, Casa Rondena, and Nob Hill Bar and Grill with fresh produce from Cornucopia’s on-site greenhouse. We are currently supplying these restaurants with fresh micro greens, such as arugula and basil, and a variety of specialty tomatoes on a weekly basis. All the produce is being grown locally by the clients at Cornucopia Adult Day Services and then used in the restaurants’ menu items.
