Environmentally friendly construction is the focus of the Habitat for Humanity, ASC Developmental Education, and ASC Community Partnerships series of workshops from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday May 14, 15, and 16, and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday May 21, 22, and 23. The workshops will provide hands-on experience in constructing an environmentally friendly home, while helping to provide affordable housing to the San Luis Valley. The workshops will cover the use of ecologically sound materials, energy efficiency, basic construction skills, and teamwork, in a standard construction environment.

A brief orientation and basic instruction will be held on the first day of each series in Richardson Hall, room 231, before transferring over to the worksite. Students and community members are welcome to take part in either or both of the workshops. A $35.00 fee is required for each session, to cover training and workshop expenses. Students can receive credit by registering for the course, Habitat for Humanity Green Home, ID 179.
