Land, water, and community blend in the centuries-old traditional acequia (ditch) irrigation systems visible on the landscape in Northern New Mexico. Acequias are owned and managed by self-organized farmers and provide community-based flood irrigation systems for agriculture. Historical and current acequia operations sustain the culture heritage of water distribution and their yearly use and maintenance creates and sustains community cohesion.
"Acequias in Northern New Mexico: History, Tradition, Community and the Ecology of Place" is the LA 4010 course being taught as part of the Doel Reed courses by Cheryl Mihalko and other visiting instructors.
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our colleague and friend, Dr. Richard Payne.

Payne received a B.S. degree in Horticulture from Oklahoma A&M College in 1950 and later received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Floriculture from The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.
