About the Center
Work in Beauty is committed to the promotion of regenerative agricultural practices and the restoration of our environment. To that end, we established, in 2017, the Regenerative Learning Center in Candy Kitchen, NM, as a demonstration and research site. We are located on ten acres in the small community of Candy Kitchen, NM.
Throughout the growing season workshops are offered at the Regenerative Learning Center. The workshops have covered anything from regenerative agriculture, rainwater harvesting earthworks, mushroom cultivation, raising chickens, and more. Check out or event page for a list of current workshops.
Throughout the ten acre property, one can find numerous demonstration examples of rainwater harvesting earthworks. These include swales, terraces, infiltration basins, brush dams, and more.
The Regenerative Learning Center hosts retreats giving by Work in Beauty and other organizations. The site has an outdoor kitchen with running water, outdoor showers, and a "bunk house" trailer with four individual rooms with bedding space for twelve, as well as plenty of camping space.
The Regenerative Learning Center is host to the Candy Kitchen Community Garden. The garden is run by volunteers from the local community and has been growing every year. For 2023, the garden will have two hoop houses as well as the outside garden. See the Candy Kitchen Facebook page for current information.
On NM State Highway 53, between mile markers 41 and 42, turn south onto BIA 125. Proceed heading south for about 8 miles and turn right onto BIA 120 heading toward Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. The Regenerative Learning Center is approximately 2 miles down this gravel road, the first gate on the right after crossing the cattleguard.
