“What’s can we do to have a secure water?”, asked one of participants in our January Green Café on Climate Change and Water Resources in New Mexico. The answer is, lots if we choose to do it. On Saturday June 21, (9:30-noon) in the Performance Space, La Tienda experts from the Eldorado Water and Sanitation District, city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County will gather to answer your questions about plans to prepare for a more drought-prone. They can make plans but turning plans into actions that allow us to adapt to a more drought-prone future require public understanding and support. Will you join us in a effort to become informed and support the changes we need to make?

Lisa, a Chess Novel
“Two thumbs up. This is the most realistic chess novel ever.” Full review here. – Chess Writer Dana Mackenzie
Watch the official trailer here: https://vimeo.com/79862070
The debut novel by chess grandmaster Jesse Kraai tells the story of a 13-year-old California girl who defies her mother and her school to study chess with Russian master Igor Ivanov. Lisa is an exploration of what it means to get an education in chess, and a meditation on what makes the game so compelling to those who play. It is a fantastic story with a cast of characters that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever set foot in a tournament hall.
Lisa is available in ebook and paperback.
For more about her story please visit:

“Lisa will give non-chessplayers a glimpse into what living in this bubble is really like.” – Grandmaster and chess writer Josh Friedel

This collaboration, over a period of three years, has taken them to new insights and discoveries about themselves, about horses, about mustangs, and about the survival of our planet.
They will share their insights, experiences and artistry about and to benefit wild horses of the Center for Inter Species Peace & Justice. Alicia Nation and Victoria Lustig will share their discoveries and artistry; together with Betsy Robinson, Matthew Blank, Jay Fishback and other artists from the area, presenting spoken word, music, fashion art and photography in unique and beautiful perspective on horses and wild horses at the July 6th event.
The Gala will be held at the La Tienda Performance Space from 6:30 to 9 PM and will include music, staged poetry readings, an Equestrian Couture Fashion Show, refreshments, photography, silent auction. Come and learn more about these magnificent and amazing four legged friends and be inspired.

Communities, businesses and governments around the globe are reconsidering the concept of money. In Rethinking Money, Lietaer and Dunne explore the origins of our current monetary system, built on bank debt and scarcity, revealing the surprising and sometimes shocking ways its unconscious limitations give rise to so many of our current and serious problems.
They will offer real world examples of ordinary people and their communities using new money, working in cooperation with national currencies, to strengthen local economies, create work, and beautify cities.
