We are thrilled to introduce the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta, occurring monthly beginning on October 20. Named in honor of Dr. Rembe, who passed away this spring, and inspired by his love of Los Poblanos, his curiosity, intelligence and community relations, this series aims to celebrate his legacy by promoting stimulating conversations rooted in the core values and mission of Los Poblanos. The lecture series is also a nod to the rich history of La Quinta Cultural Center of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Simms family held lectures and events that promoted the arts.
Soon, cool, crisp mornings will arrive to mark the change in season after a warm desert summer. Autumn in New Mexico is fast approaching, with roadside stands infusing the air with the warming, unmistakable scent of roasting green chile, as hot air balloons float gently across the horizon. The magnificent fall foliage of our native cottonwood and aspen trees provide the perfect backdrop for exploring the trails of the Sandia Mountains, cycling the nearby Paseo del Bosque Trail or simply enjoying the views from the comfort of your patio.
It's hard to believe we are halfway through this year already, and it's time to get a vacation on the calendar before any more time slips away. If you've been considering a visit to the farm, don't let any more time go by before booking your escape. Late August and early September are the perfect times to sneak in a trip as the weather is still warm and it still feels like summer here in the North Valley. Read on for our favorite ways to spend a few summer days on the farm.
