Barbara will participate in the National New Deal Preservation Association's 2015 "Paint Your Shovel" fund-raising project. The completed "shovel art" will be collected at a Spring Celebration at Payne's Nursery (715 St. Michael's Drive, Santa Fe) on Friday, March 20. The shovels will be exhibited around Santa Fe during the month of April and auctioned at a special event in May.
The New Mexico Chapter of the National New Deal Preservation Association has spent over $550,000 identifying, restoring and conserving New Deal accomplishments in New Mexico. The Chapter also educates people about the importance of the New Deal in our nation's history.
