Come Mud, Come All! Come have some good clean fun and help preserve a Santa Fe Treasure!

San Miguel Chapel, often known as the oldest church in the country,
is currently undergoing preservation work for water drainage, cracks in the walls,
and stucco repair. We're looking for volunteers to:

Screen dirt
Push wheelbarrows of mud
Mix adobe mud for plaster
Make adobe bricks
Repair adobe walls
Apply mud plaster to walls
Call 505-982-9521 or email

You'll have the chance to work with
professional engineers, architects, archeologists, and preservationists.
You'll meet other volunteers
(local and from as far away as Yale University and South America!).
You'll learn a traditional building skill
and learn about Santa Fe history and culture.
Sign up as an individual or get a group together -
your friends, a team, your family.

Come join in this summer's biggest and muddiest project!!!!
