PEEC News:

Bring the whole family to PEEC 6:30-8 p.m., July 15 and we’ll get your hands dirty designing and building mini adobe structures.

With imagination, mini adobe bricks and supplies for a mud plaster, you can create a building of your dreams. Families are welcome to drop in anytime throughout the program.

This Summer Family Evening is brought to PEEC by Cornerstones Community Partnerships. Since 1986, Cornerstones has worked to preserve architectural heritage and community traditions at more than 300 locations in New Mexico and the Greater Southwest.

By starting a model program for the preservation and maintenance of historic adobe buildings involving the training of youth in traditional building skills and sustainable construction methods, Cornerstones has built a national reputation for the creative use of historic preservation as a tool for community revitalization and the affirmation of cultural values.

Cornerstones is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit historic preservation organization located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Its projects have been based in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, California, Utah and in many states of the Mexican Frontera.

The event is free to attend for PEEC members; the cost for non-members is $5 per family, regardless of how many are in the family. No advance registration is required. To learn more about this and other PEEC programs, visit or contact 505.662.0460 or
