Acequia Jardin is a community inspired by both traditional New Mexican villages and close-knit “pocket neighborhoods.” Our name comes from the Spanish acequia (irrigation ditch) and jardin (garden) and was chosen because of the historic Duranes Acequia that waters our community garden. Through a combination of neighborhood design and shared values of simplicity and living in harmony with the environment, we have created a community that encourages interacting with neighbors and looking after each other.
Home ownership includes a one-tenth share of the community garden, guest casita, community room, and common lands. To manage and maintain our common property we meet every other month to make consensus-based decisions. Residents volunteer for specific tasks best suited to their inclinations and schedule. For larger tasks that need many hands we have occasional “work days” sometimes followed by a meal. We do employ occasional laborers for tasks larger than our skills or abilities.
Our homes are small and primarily designed for energy efficiency, easy maintenance and aging-in-place. There is no age restriction, but most residents are over age 55.
