Need a Re-usable grocery bag?

Rio Grande Credit Union is thrilled to be partnering with TNM.  The partnership is intended to encourage Rio Grande Credit Union member- owners to donate to TNM and in return they will receive an RGCU reusable fold-up grocery bag, in light of the new clean and Green ordinance. The partnership will begin on January 15, 2020 and will end on February 29, 2020. Also a special shout out to The Nature Conservancy who helped to hook us with The Rio Grande Credit Union – thanks!

Welcome To our new TNM Assistant Program Manager Maria Padilla!

Born and raised in the north valley on a farm, Maria was taught the importance of working and valuing the land. Maria has served as a program manager and coordinator for the developmentally disabled for the last 37 years, including 18 years at Adelante and 12 years at ARCA.  She has also been a foster mom for thirteen boys and one girl with disabilities ranging from medically fragile to developmental issues. Maria came to TNM in July of 2019 as a contractor and became an employee in August of 2019. She REALLY enjoys getting out and meeting the neighborhoods. She loves seeing the increase in tree coverage, and the evolution the neighbors go through during the NeighborWoods process to make a stronger neighborhood.
