Teaming up with the University of New Mexico


For the Fall semester 2013, we teamed up with the University of New Mexico Sustainability Studies program for a practicum course to give students collaborative hands-on local sustainability experience directly benefiting the community.

At The Hive, students attended workshops on Super Adobe construction, LED light installation, and DIY solar panel assembly. Everyone has been so eager to learn and willing to work hard. Through the rain, snow, and cold, we’ve managed to put a lot of hours into our project. We truly couldn’t have asked for more.

It’s been such a blast and are so proud of what the students have managed to accomplish in such a short time. They will be revealing their finished product and giving a presentation demonstrating what they’ve learned on Tuesday, December 10, 2013. Anyone who’s interested is welcome to come check out their beautiful work. To be honest, we’re sad that it’s over, but we’re looking forward to next semester!
