Are you a neighborhood association?

No.  We are a community group, registered with the city of Albuquerque.  The recognized neighborhood association for Santa Barbara-Martineztown is the Santa Barbara-Martineztown Neighborhood Association.  Visit them at

I already belong to the Neighborhood Association.  Can I also join Semillas y Raices?


We welcome all who are interested in our mission.  Please contact us at if you'd like to learn more or are interested in joining.

I don't live in the neighborhood.  Can I still join?

Absolutely.  Because we are a private community group and not a neighborhood association we do not have residency requirements and restrictions.  Our only requirement is that you are interested in Santa Barbara-Martineztown and those who call it home.
