On the first Saturday of each month, Home Depot offers the same sort of workshop between 9 a.m. and noon. (It only lasts that long if there's enough interest.)
These are free programs and great for both genders. Free aprons and eye protection are usually included and available for take-home. Certificates are personalized and offered at the end for successful completion of the project. Lowe's gives a patch and a sticker. Home Depot gives a pin for clothing. These are fun to collect and/or scrapbook. Take your camera . . . it's a hoot! Take advantage of it!
On the second Saturday of each month, Lowe's hosts a building workshop for children, free of charge. I believe it starts at 10 a.m. and lasts one-hour.

The last regularly scheduled workshop of this year will be held--Sunday, November 7--at La Orilla Farm (please see attachment for details). We will be covering all aspects of soil creation, nurturing, care and feeding, and reverent use. You will never again think of the ground beneath your feet as anything less than a gift. To celebrate a full season of workshops, and as my way of saying thank you, this last weekend will be a two-for-one offering: Every paying attendee can bring along one other person--spouse, partner, child, parent, bff, whoever--for free. If you don't know anyone, pick up a homeless person or stop at the Co-op and invite a stranger. Or bring that redneck neighbor you don't like (or, if you're the redneck, bring your good-for-nothing commie liberal neighbor). We're all family here. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Aggressive Soil Building: Intensive and Extensive Soil is the heart of our gardens, our culture, our life on earth. This workshop will include a basic introduction to the permaculture concept of zones as a way of prioritizing our approaches to soil creation. From vermiculture, bokashi, and other effective microorganisms, to hot composts, to lazy composts, to sheet mulching, to maintenance mulching, to green manures and cover crops, to chop-and-drop, to fire, to biochar, to pasturing with domestic and/or wild animals, . . . and maybe a few other surprises, this workshop will touch on it all and show you how to participate directly in the care and nurturing of our civilization. Even if you're an unconscious gardener (and we are all gardeners), you can contribute to the soil-building process by helping things to move through the cycles. Come prepared to take lots of notes (and pictures if you wish) and to get your hands dirty. This workshop contains everything you need to know . . . period.
Sunday, November 7, 1:00 p.m. until finished (three to four hours) Michael Reed, Permaculture instructor $25 with reservation, $30 for procrastinators (two-for-one still applies) La Orilla Farm, 2401 Black Mesa Loop SW Call 877-2877 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for directions or if you have questions
Upcoming classes in 2011 will address grafting and pruning, forest gardens, meadow making and more. . . .

Solar power is changing! Hear how Photovoltaic Technologies are Changing our Energy Future with Rusty Schmit of CleanSwitch, Albuquerque
Date: Monday November 1st, 2010 Time: 6:30-7:45pm Where: Albuquerque Academy, Simms Center (Building #13)
While the first solar cells were constructed in the 1880's, only in the past few years has solar power made economic sense as a source of residential and commercial electricity. New technologies and manufacturing efficiencies are making solar photovoltaics (PV) even more cost effective. In this lecture, we will explore these new technologies and discuss how solar power is poised to radically alter the world's energy landscape.
Rusty Schmit is a globally recognized leader in the field, with 30 years experience in the solar energy sector. Rusty began his career in solar technology development at Motorola and Texas Instruments. As CEO of Photowatt, a French solar manufacturer, Rusty initiated and supervised a wide range of global projects, from solar powered water pumping in sub-Saharan Africa to solar powered parking meters in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prior to co-founding CleanSwitch, Rusty founded and led New Mexico-based Advent Solar, a solar technology design and engineering firm that was recently acquired by Applied Materials.
