Overview

The Adobe Story is an outgrowth of a senior education and service experience called the New Mexico Adobe Mission Project. It was developed as an experimental model for providing development education by Helen Kerschner, Ph.D., President of the American Association for International Aging. One of the primary goals of the project was to experiment with an innovative method for incorporating international issues into a seemingly domestic education and service program. Two project objectives were: (1) to educate Americans and share the information and experience common to other peoples of the world, in order to honor and rescue an almost lost art; and (2) to develop a bridge of mutual interests with our international neighbors through education and involvement, in a shared experience that all can understand and appreciate. Hopefully this book will expand the understanding of how earth has been and can be used in times of economic hardship. If this provides a common bond between nations on a very basic level, we will feel this book has been a success.
