The students from Stonehill College traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico from Boston, Massachusetts for a week of service and learning. Their time consisted of working alongside humble individuals that devote their time and resources to serve their community. On their first full day, the students were able to visit the Santa Domingo pueblo for Feast Day. In the following days, they served free hot lunch at the Guadalupe church, learned how to clean seeds and corn, and sort produce at a local farm, helped take care of farm animals in Santa Cruz at Four Bridges Traveling Permaculture Institute, and enjoyed the natural beauty of New Mexico. On their last day, the students mentored middle school students at Turquoise Trail. They also enjoyed the lessons and wisdom from many local elders.
